I've worked in education for 5 years. Most recently I have taught 3rd grade, 1st grade, and 2nd grade. This coming school year I will finally have a permanent spot as a 1st grade teacher! I can't wait to have a place to call home for more than a year! :)
I've been told I'm very calm and even keeled. I don't always feel that way! I really enjoy teaching and I like to make connections with the students. I think it's important for them to know you truly care about them and how they do. I like to create a classroom that's fun, very organized, and where students feel comfortable sharing answers and ideas even if they aren't correct or are different.
Bachelors in Business Management and Marketing Masters in Elementary Education
I love spending time with my family and friends, cuddling up with my beloved pets, tending to my vegetable garden, and of course reading a good book!
