5 years teaching 1st & 2nd grade. 2 years to present teaching 4th grade.
My approach to teaching is to be firm, fair, and consistent! I believe that student's don't care what you say until they know you care! I find that lessons that are cooperative, hands-on, current, and relevant tend to engaged my students and make learning more fun and memorable.

I am a 4th gr. teacher who loves finding and tweaking great ideas to implement in the classroom! My interests lie in best teaching practices. I strive to provide a balanced, integrated, differentiated, and engaging learning environment. My classroom treasures come from educational guru's books and fellow teachers.
