An Army spouse, I've taught in Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Germany, and currently New York! I stayed home with my children when they were small, so I have experience from both sides of the desk as well as from around the world! I've taught for 25 years.
I am totally right brained! I use technology in every step of my day, and have found ways to make Common Core interesting for my students by making it fun! My mantra is "Work Smart - not Hard!" I actually do work very hard, but when I can do something smarter that gives me a little more free time for things I enjoy, I do it!
