I have taught 18 years and have settled as a Gifted and Talented Learning Interventionist. I have taught 7th grade science, 6-8th grade Language Arts, 5th grade, and now teach 3-6 grade focusing mainly on Reading, Writing, and Math. Differentiating, Aligning curriculum, and Higher Level Thinking skills have been my focus over the last 5 years along with Rigor, Critical Thinking, Inquiry base learning, Growth Mind-Set and integrating technology.
My goal for my students is to be inspired to learn through creativity and projects where critical thinking is used. I enjoy creating projects and lessons where students don't realize they are using higher level thinking skills because they are having fun while learning.

In addition to being a teacher, I am a mother of three children. I am a photographer, scrapbooker, and hiker. I try to balance life between teaching and being a mother with trying to keep up with my passions with limiting stress and dust bunnies.
