I have taught for 15 years, with 10 of those years being in first grade.
I use a variety of approaches to my teaching. Hands-on activities and "real-life" application is how I structure the activities the students complete. Students are active in centers and interactive software on the SMARTBoard and the iPads.
I have recently received the "Master Teacher" distinction.
I received a BS degree from a college in Kentucky. After beginning my teaching career, I obtained an MS degree from a college in Michigan.
I am married with 2 young boys. My family is very important to me!
