I have been teaching for 20 years on the heart of Indiana! I taught 2 years in special ed, 1 year in 6th grade, and 17 years in 2nd grade. The primary grades are my heart! I have also taught educational tech workshops to other teachers for the last couple of years too. We are 1-to-1 at our school, so I have a lot of experience incorporating technology into my daily routine. We use iPads and Macbooks.
I am a very creative teacher that likes to use a mix of hands on resources and technology in my classroom. My favorite moments in teaching is when the students and I "departed from the text". I love my students and I love to learn. My favorite thing to teach is language arts, and my favorite authors are Robert Munsch, Patricia Polacco, and Eve Bunting.
Yet to be added
I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. Then I went off to Oklahoma Baptist University and majored in elementary education and special education, with a minor in middle school language arts. Over my 17 years of teaching, I have done a lot with our high ability students and in the area of technology. Our school district uses Canvas, so I have also put many things in the Canvas Commons. You can find those things if you search Rebecca Crull or Southern Hancock Co Cmty SD.
I am a wife to Shawn, who is an amazing high school teacher, and a mom of 2 wonderfully crazy boys, Brannon (15 yrs) and Alex (13 yrs). We live in the amazing community of New Palestine, Indiana where I have taught for 18 years.
