This is my 5th year teaching full-day kindergarten in a public school setting. I have my Master's Degree in Reading from Edinboro University, and I am a certified Reading Specialist in Pennsylvania.
My teaching style is a Balanced Literacy approach, with a focus on Shared Reading, Guided Reading, and Kid Writing. I love to integrate Science and Social Studies with Reading and Writing. I believe a kindergarten classroom should be very hands-on, with lots of fun science experiements and thematic studies that are CCS-aligned!
Most Outstanding English Major-Penn State Behrend-Class of 2007
I attended Penn State Behrend in Erie, PA and received my Bachelor's Degree in English with a focus in Literature. After completing 4 years there, I attended Mercyhurst College for 1 year to finish my teaching requirements. There, I became certified to teach K-6. I recently obtained my Master's Degree from Edinboro University and Reading Specialist certification.
I love spending time with my fiance and our three-legged cats, my family (especially my baby nephew!), and friends. I love to read, decorate, and cooking/baking new recipes. I wish I could live inside the pages of Country Living magazine!
