Im in my 9th year as an educator. I spent five years teaching in the classroom in Charlotte North Carolina, in grade 3-5, I've spent the last 3 1/2 years as a reading coach, for 6 months in Charlotte, and then I relocated back to my home state of Indiana, and work for a school district on the outer skirts of Indianapolis.
Hands on teaching! I love when kids are engaged and enjoy what they are doing. If we do not think out side the box, our students won't either!!

The things I create are mostly based off of the Indiana and North Carolina standard course of study, but am adapting all lessons to the Common Core. I am a reading coach for a small district outside of Indianapolis, and I love what I do.
