I am currently in my 5th year as a 6th grade teacher at a middle school. I have taught math, science, social studies, and English at this grade level. In the summer months I teach various camps for 2nd-4th graders.
I like to have a welcome, flexible environment in my classroom that helps reach all students at their ability level. I often have students working in teams and solving various problems as we try to move towards incorporating more Common Core Standards.
I serve on various decision making committees at my school that range from school improvement to curriculum planning.
I graduated with a bachelor's in elementary education. After my first year of teaching I went back to school and obtained my master's degree in educational administration. Since then I have gone back again and I am now working on a second master's in curriculum and instruction. Can you tell I like school? :)
I grew up on a farm with a large family. I know the value of hardwork and love bring that work ethic to my classroom.
