2012 marks my 5th year as a teacher, all in third grade! I moved to South Carolina right out of college to take a teaching job in Orangeburg, SC. I loved the kids and the great people I worked with, but we were a little homesick! My husband and I moved back to Michigan last year and were both blessed with teaching jobs in the same school in our hometown.
I don't like to stand up in front of the room and lecture! YUCK! I prefer short, focused lessons, that's why workshops work great for me!
I graduated Summa Cum Laude, and was listed as one of only six students from my graduating class in Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.
I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education with a focus in social studies from Baker College of Owosso. I plan to start my graduate studies in January 2013 through Michigan State University.
In my free time, I like to garden, go geocaching with my husband, work on projects around the house, and TRAVEL! :)
