TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching kindergarten since 2008. I previously taught fourth grade, but I've discovered over the last few years that I love working with young children!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like learning to be engaging and meaningful! I use the Common Core Standards in all of my planning. I focus on using developmentally appropriate practices with my kindergartners, with a focus on play. Learning should be fun!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Yet to be added.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I studied Elementary Education at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in literacy through the University of New England.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in New York with my husband and two cats, but I am a Vermonter by birth and by heart! I love reading, traveling, cooking, and geocaching!
