12 Years of Classroom Experience in Elementary Grades
I think it's important for the classroom to be a reflection of the group of students I have. I enjoy letting the students facilitate their own learning and expect them to actively participate in the daily functions of the classroom. Creative expression and representation drives my teaching! I love being a teacher!

I am a wife, a mother of a beautiful baby girl, and a teacher. Balance is key! It's tough...it's life...but I love every minute of it and I wouldn't change one thing!
