I have been teaching 3rd grade for 7 years. I absolutely love teaching and cannot imagine myself doing anything else. I enjoy creating engaging and hands-on materials for students! My dream is to be a mentor and teaching coach to other teachers. I look forward to seeing where this journey leads me.
My teaching style is very hands-on. My goal is to create a safe and engaging environment for all of my students. I challenge each student to do their personal best always! I love what I do!
I am a highly effective teacher that reaches out to all students and helps students show their potential.
I graduated from Bethel College in 2006 and went on to get my Masters in Education at Walden University. I am always trying to learn new and innovative ways to teach.
I have 2 wonderful boys that are 12 and 9! I love spending time with them and seeing them grow! I am excited to see where this journey takes me to help me to better support my family.
