I am heading into my 6th year of teaching. I have taught 3rd and 4th grade in two different schools. I student taught in 1st grade and teach incoming 1st graders every summer in summer school and summer camp.
I believe in hands-on learning for students in moderation. Students need to explore and learn from what they see and realize on their own while also having explicit instruction. I believe in structure and organization in order to keep everything running smoothly.
Yet to be added
I graduated with my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I also earned my MA in Curriculum and Instruction through the University of Missouri.
I am currently engaged and am the puppy mom to two adorable dogs. I love being in education and work throughout the year, summer included, to make lessons that are engaging and relevant to students.
