I have been teaching since 2006. I have taught 1st and 2nd grade as well as been a K-5 instructional coach. Currently I'm teaching the grade where my heart truly is- 1st!
I believe students learn best through engaging and meaningful activities that are deliberately planned. While difficult at times, I strive to meet the academic, emotional, and social needs of all my students.
