I have managed a curriculum based daycare (ages birth through pre-K) for 2 years. I received my teaching degree with a concentration in Biology and began teaching fourth grade. I have now taught fourth grade for 2 years. My concentration in Biology allows me to extend my License to upper grades. With this experience I have tutored 7th and 8th grade students (all subjects areas). Outside of the world of teaching my husband and I own and operate a CrossFit Facility.
I Love manipulates and task cards!!! I run a tight ship in my classroom and I am a no nonsense kinda of teacher. I make sure my classroom is organized and efficient. My students understand that it is a team effort to make or classroom the best everyday.
I was among the top 6 in my graduating class. I was part of an Honor society when I was attending college.
When I was in elementary school, I had a really hard time with reading and focus. In sixth grade I was on a second grade reading level and I was told that I had a learning disability. Beyond that point I really had to work hard to get to where I am now. This is one of the reasons why I chose to become a teacher. From my own success story I know that all the children teachers spoke poorly about or generally have a hard time with; there is a great success story. Differential instruction is the key to success in a classroom.
Most of the items in my store will be added as I move through the school year. Therefore, when I post something I have created for my classroom...you may enjoy it at that time too. TpT is not a full time job for me, I love teaching and hope that my store items are something everyone can use.
