In the past 16 years I have taught: K-4 Learning Support, Transitional 1st grade, 1st grade and 2nd grade.
I like to figure out what the students already know and what they still need to know in order to be successful. From there, I create my plan to help them reach our goals. I love to find and create resources that engage students in authentic learning experiences.
The drawings and notes my students make for me :)
My undergraduate degree is in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education and Special Education. I have a Master's Degree in Education and a Reading Specialist Certificate.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy: reading, working out, painting, and traveling with my family.
