I've been teaching for 15years and can't imagine doing anything else. I've taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade; and I'm currently teaching 2nd grade. I absolutely LOVE what I do!!!
I truly strive to create a fun-filled, hands-on teaching style where students are given opportunities to reach beyond what they currently know and make connections to what is being taught. It is my mission as a teacher to develop students who are problem solvers, who may not always know all the answers but are confident in their abilities to find them. :)
I've been honored by being selected as teacher of the year (for my school) twice, and given the fabulous teachers I've taught with, I was beyond humbled by the experience.
I received my bachelor's in Psychology and master's in Human Relations. I loved teaching elementary-aged students, so I went back for certification in elementary education. :)
I'm a wife, busy mom to 2 boys, runner, new yogi, and an OU fan :)
