I teach 2nd grade, so our classroom environment is ORGANIZED CHAOS!! It's very important for me to keep myself organized, as well as the students, so that we can let loose and have fun learning! I enjoy doing hands on activities with my students that will provide lasting memories and lifelong learning.

I've wanted to teach since I was in 2nd grade, and it just so happens I've been able to spend the last 7 years back in the place I love! When I'm not teaching and planning, I love to read, spend time with my soon to be hubby, my family, and my two precious Maltese pups-Polly and Murphy. I've also discovered a new passion...cake decorating!
