I've been teaching for 6 years. One of those years I was a reading specialist. Teaching is the passion of my heart. I love children. I love seeing them happy and having fun. I am moving this year from 6th grade Language Arts to 3rd grade! I'm nervous and excited! I have 19 credits in art, almost enough to get an endorsement and teach it. Art is my creative passion.I began doodling when I was 12 sitting in my history class. It's been a journey and I am thrilled to share my love with you.
Hands on, Brains on. I love projects and fun practice. Interactive notebooks are my new favorite.
