I've been teaching for the past 16 years and I love what I do. I've spent 6 years as a K-8 Technology Instructor, 2 years teaching fourth grade, 4 years teaching 3rd grade and the last 4 years teaching 2nd grade. I mostly taught in Title 1 schools and strive to reach the "unreachable."
I thrive on using integrated hands-on activities and incorporating technology. I love using brain based research to inspire children to learn in spite of themselves. Learning should be fun and memorable. I believe in working smart and not hard. I love what I do and do what I love!
