I have experience as a general education teacher, special education teacher and counselor. I love ideas that are simple but effective. I am motivated by attention getters and lessons with lasting impacts. I like to leave my students with something to think about! I try to incorporate my humor, creativity and love for students into everything I do!
We all look for those light bulb moments in education- the moment when you see a student grasp a concept, think in a new way, or learn a new skill. Every item I create is geared towards generating new light in student's minds and hearts. It is essential to me that my lessons leave a lasting impact. My goal is to promote a sense of wonder and natural curiosity about concepts. I feel that it is our duty to not only teach academics but to strengthen children's social and emotional skills as well.
