I have taught 4th grade, kindergarten, and currently teach first grade after looping with my kindergarteners! This is my 4th year of teaching.
I love hands-on experiences for my students that put them in charge of their own learning opportunities. With a switch to 1:1 iPads this year, I am also eager to be providing additional 21st century learning experiences for all of my students!
Yet to be added
I grew up in a small town in northeast Iowa and attended a private school for K-6 and the pubic school for 7-12. I then attended the University of Northern Iowa for my undergraduate degree before pursuing my masters from the University of Wisconsin - Stout.
I married my best friend in July 2014. He raises cattle and I raise young minds in the classroom. It is a perfect blend.
