TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a 4th grade teacher since 1999. Believe it or not, I am teaching in the very same classroom in which I was a 4th grade student way back in 1984. It is such an honor to teach in the community that I grew up in. I am devoted to my profession and nothing gives me more pleasure than to design instructional materials that engage my kids and strengthen their abilities as students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is a wee bit on the structured side, but full of rich and meaningful learning experiences. My passion is writing. I love giving the kids the tools and support that they need to believe that they are authors!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My husband and kids think that that I am pretty awesome....that is enough for me!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.
