I currently teach first grade at Dana Elementary School in North Carolina. I have taught in second grade as well and I have experience in all other elementary grades.
I consider myself a teacher leader and an instructional technology expert. I am utilizing iPads, Apple TV, SMART Boards, SMART Tables, SMART Response, laptops, cameras, and more in my classroom. I also find myself teaching to the different levels of thinking from Bloom's Revised Taxonomy and the different learning styles of Gardner's Multiple Intelligences. I am looking to create a universal learning environment for my students. I focus a lot of my instruction around 21st century skills and character education.

I love to be at the lake, and I love to decorate my new house. I also love to read and, of course, to plan awesome lessons that will keep my students engaged.
