I have been teaching for the past 11 years. I have taught in California, Illinois, and Wisconsin. I spent 7 of those years teaching 3rd grade, 4 years teaching 2nd grade, and I am very excited to begin the exciting adventure of teaching 1st grade this year!!
I believe in differentiating my instruction to meet the needs of all of my students. Students come to us with varying degrees of experience and it is our job to build on those experiences and stretch their learning to the next level.
Yet to be added
I have been certified as a reading specialist and a reading teacher since 2008. I received my MA in reading from the University of St. Francis in 2008 and my BA in elementary education from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2000.
I am married to a wonderful man and have 3 incredible children who keep us very busy!
