TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 20th year teaching, but I began 38 years ago. I left the profession for many years to raise my children and did a variety of part-time jobs. This is my 12th year back, and I'll never stop learning and growing! I currently teach 4th grade, which I think is the perfect grade for me.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to give students choice and ownership over their learning whenever I can. I also love to integrate technology into my classroom with my SMARTBoard and 6 iPads.
