The first year teaching has been described as building a plane while flying it. This could not be a more accurate description! I am the tamer of chaos, a charismatic first year ready to take on middle school!
My love for reading has given me a passion that I can share with my students. Reading has turned into standards and goals and state mandated tests. In my classroom, we don't just read, we engage with the text. We connect with the characters, we have book talks, we take charge of our learning through literature circles, but mostly, we have fun with our books. I'm fostering lifelong readers, not test takers.

Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Oklahoma State University.
I love all things Lilly Pulitzer and Rae Dunn. I also have an absurd obsession with coffee and pizza, but not together. Ew.
