I've been teaching for more than a decade, with all "makes and models" of students. I've worked in three schools, all of different socioeconomic status. I am a general education teacher, but I am the collaborative teacher on my grade level, so I co-teach with my special education partner.


First and foremost, I make sure my students know I love them. We are silly, but know when to be serious. Every item I create is something I use, or have used, in my classroom. My philosophy in creating lessons or activities is that every item should teach the skill thoroughly, give opportunities to reteach, and have the ability to enrich. I love and use the cute stuff, but I am more interested in making sure my students are learning.

I have three children, four dogs, and four cats. I love reading, writing, running, cycling, swimming, theater, singing, cooking, and photography. I even have a tiny photography business that I love!
