I have taught in private school, public school, and even homeschool. I've subbed, job-shared, and have worked in every grade level at some point in my career. Second grade is where I have most of my experience, and I currently teach fourth grade math, science, and social studies. Nearly all of my lessons on TPT have been lessons I have created for my own students.
As I have grown in my career, I have discovered the importance of allowing students to see that everywhere we turn, there is an opportunity to learn something. I value learning with relative content and aim to create lessons in which students see relevance within their own lives. I love centers, stations, group work, and real world problem solving! I have taught in a very classical private school and a very progressive public school, and I believe that it takes both old school and new school techniques to deliver a superior education.
