I'm a 5th grade teacher with lots of experience teaching Pre-K, 1st, 4th and now... 5th:) I love planning curriculum and coming up with new ways to engage students and keep everyone, including myself, happy in the classroom! Teaching is a journey! Enjoy the ride and learn to thrive!
I believe in letting the students lead the way! I provide a structure while leaving plenty of room to change course according to the needs and wants of my class. If you pay close attention to the class, they will show you the way!
