TEACHING EXPERIENCE

It's hard to believe that this is my 25th year as a classroom teacher! Most of this time has been with the little ones in grades K-2.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My favorite thing about teaching is seeing the excitement for learning on the faces of my students and watching their progress throughout the school year! I love everything fun, colorful, creative, cute, interactive and inspiring! I spend countless hours searching for new ideas, researching best practices and creating items for use in my classroom! I hope you and your students will enjoy them too!
