This is my fifth year teaching. I have taught kindergarten and first grade.
I teach using a gradual release method. I scaffold children to support their learning, and I instruct so that they will be able to use the skills learned in the classroom in real life situations. My hope is that my students will be intrinsically motivated to succeed.

I studied at the University of Northern Colorado where I earned my BA in Elementary Education with an English as a Second Language Endorsement. I recently graduated from Regis University earning my M.Ed as a Reading Specialist.
I love my job and working with mini comedians :) Stop by my blog and say hi! learninbooks.blogspot.com
