I am in my 17th year of teaching. I am job sharing for the first time in a dual language 1st grade classroom. I teach the students in English. My counterpart teaches the students in Spanish. Prior to this year I spent the majority of my years in 3rd grade with a few years in 2nd and 5th grades.
I like to incorporate math, history, cooperative learning and "hands on" activities wherever I can. When teaching in the intermediate grades I love to post timelines everywhere. We refer to them often through all subject areas. By the middle of the year the kids are thinking about them and referring to them on their own.
Yet to be added
I graduated from K-State University.
I married my college sweetheart. We have 2 beautiful children.
