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!
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!
Yet to be added.
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.
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!
