I have been teaching 2nd grade for 12 years now and totally love this age. They still love school and are so eager to learn. I also taught 2 years of 1st grade, 4 years of Title One reading and math grades 1-3, and 3 years of Reading Recovery.
I love to incorporate technology in my classroom. My students love using iPads to enhance their learning. I teach in a 1:1 iPad classroom.
I have published a children's book called I want to Be a Scuba Diver. It is sold by Hameray Publishing Company.
My undergrad is from Taylor University and I have a master's in Elementary Education from Ball State University. I have also been certified in Reading Recovery.
I love photography, technology, scuba diving, geocaching and anything Mac. I enjoy reading blogs and following my Twitter PLN to learn new ideas to use in the classroom.
