I have taught for 19 years. I have taught 3rd through 12th grade with the majority of this time as a 5th grade teacher. For the past two years I have taught 3rd grade. I like to involve technology into my classroom often.
I am a hands on highly engaged teacher. I push students to reach their highest individual levels. Additionally, I like to ensure that a touch of humor is added each day!
I am "Honored" to be a teacher!
I am a National Board Certified Teacher (Middle Childhood Generalist) since 2005. I earned a BS in Elem. Ed. at the University of Central Oklahoma and a Masters in Educational Leadership.
I have co-written a math vocabulary workbook for children in 3rd through 5 grade. "Building Math Vocabulary." It is available through Scholastic Publishing. It is a 96 page book based on the idea: Many students struggle in math, not because they lack computation skills, but because they do not know the language of math. This book fills an important need, providing students with essential practice in using key vocabulary that they often encounter in math. Engaging formats, such as riddles, puzzles, and word searches, help students master the vocabulary they need to succeed in math and on tests! Includes a reproducible math glossary mini-book.
