After teaching in the middle school for six years, I took off 10 years to raise our children. When our youngest child entered kindergarten I began subbing. After 3 years, I returned to the classroom full time. As I begin my 6th year back, I am excited to be sharing my lessons with others.
Student-centered. I enjoy building a positive relationship with each student. I do not believe in "busy work". Students in my class learn how to solve problems and get science mixed with math, social studies, and ELA. My goal is that what they learn extends beyond the walls of our classroom.
