I am a 5th grade teacher in Southern Illinois. I work in a self-contained classroom, teaching all subjects. Our district is currently in it's 5th year of implementing Common Core. For three years, I served as a 5th grade ELA representative. During this time, I helped develop our curriculum and assessments for all ELA Common Core standards.
Fun, flexible, facilitator of learning!
Working on it. :)
Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. (SIUE)
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in second grade. I love that I get to live my dream every day! I live in Southern Illinois with my husband and dog, Scottie. When I'm not teaching, planning, or creating, I love to read, decorate, and shop! Logo design by A Little Piece of Africa. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/A-Little-Peace-Of-Africa
