I'm a TPT newbie and so excited to be here! Fun facts about me: I began my career at the elementary school I attended as a child and had the best 6 years of my teaching life learning from my teaching idols. I thought I would stay at that school forever, but somehow I ended up on an adventure that sent me to Denver, then Dubai and back to Denver again. I'm currently in my 12th year of teaching and have taught 2nd - 5th grades.
I love surprising my students, wearing funny hats and tutus, singing (off key), dance-offs, empowering my students, reading workshop, Roald Dahl, thinking outside the box and ANYTHING I can do to keep my students engaged and excited about learning!
Yet to be added
I have a bachelor's in elementary education and a master's degree in reading. The best education I've ever received, however, was from spending a day at the Ron Clark Academy - a 15-year dream come true. I am not ashamed to admit that I cried about 12 times throughout the day... It was truly life-changing and has impacted my teaching more than any degree ever could.
I love mountains and cows!
