I've taught first and second grade for the past 4 years. I absolutely love teaching the young 'uns! I've also taught computer classes to preschoolers through 5th grade - and my mother-in-law. If kids can do it, then so can every teacher!
Hands-on learning with a variety of materials and experiences are my preferred methods of teaching. Oh, and everything with technology amps engagement!

I am the mother of 3 college-aged children and the wife of the most incredible man on Earth. I have 3 spunky beagles and keep a lint roller in every room of the house because of the presents they leave on my clothing. I love to quilt, cook, and read. But most of my free time is spent searching for new teaching ideas and resources.
