TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm in my tenth year of teaching at the very elementary school where I was taught. What a rewarding experience it has been. I am a fifth grade teacher, and while getting my master's degree I taught K-5th special education. Before becoming a teacher I worked in the public relations field.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is one of high expectations for myself and my students. I enjoy teaching through a hands on approach. I try to mix creativity, discovery, and problem solving in each task we undertake. Sometimes that turns out as chaos, but we give it a good effort!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's Degree in Public Relations from the University of Florida in 2001. Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Florida State University in 2004.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am the daughter of two educators, and the daughter in law of an educator. So I guess you can say it runs in the family. I am married to a nice southern gentleman and we have a two year old little boy who keeps us on our toes, and another on the way! Blog Author: www.simplysprouteducate.com
