I have been in love with fifth grade for the last fourteen years. I have taught TEAM/STEM for eight years and six years of regular fifth grade, including three departmentalized Reading and Language Arts.
I believe in technology and multiple intelligences. I believe that all students learn in different ways and that there is a way to reach all through differentiated instruction.
I have been the recipient of several different honors and awards, including being nominated for Teacher of the Year twice, but my biggest honors are letters from former parents and students that confirm that the time they spent with me has made an impact in their lives.
B.A. of Curriculum and Instruction in Elementary Education with a K-12 ESOL Endorsement
I love to travel and I like to use those experiences to enhance my lessons!
