I have been teaching for 4 years. I've taught second grade for two years, as well as 3rd and 5th grades for a year each. Many of my resources were developed as needed while I taught 2-5 grades.
I believe lessons should be FUN, interactive, and memorable. I plan my lessons to incorporate various methods of instruction, movement, and group activities. I frequently use centers to reinforce the week's learning.

I am married to a selfless man who left the beauty of the Colorado Rockies to move back to the South for me. I've lived in Arkansas, Texas, Colorado, and Tennessee. We are currently living in Uganda where I serve as a teacher mentor and education consultant to a rural primary school. I love to travel and have visited India, Mongolia, China, Afghanistan, U.A.E., Thailand, Germany, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, and South Africa.
