I taught as an educator in the Metropolitan area of Indianapolis, Indiana for 13 years. I am currently a stay-at-home mom.
My approach to teaching is to make it hands-on, to make children experience learning through high interest engaging lessons, and to make their experiences at school meaningful. I try to hit every modality of learning within a unit of study; as well differentiate my instruction to meet the needs of all my learners. In my classroom we sing, dance, play games, and incorporate technology to learn.
I was selected as my school's Teacher of the Year in 2007. I was nominated as a Senior Choice Award candidate in 2011.
I graduated from IU Bloomington with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education. I also have a Master's Degree in Reading Education.
I am a mother to two amazing children.
