I am currently teaching my fourth year of Kindergarten and love early childhood education. I also have experience in preschool and third grade where I specialized in reading instruction.
I believe strongly in the the workshop model. I love to conference with children and help to push them to that next level based on their needs. I tend to plan for the beginning of the week, but am constantly changing and creating lessons to aid my students where instruction is needed. I also believe strongly in the power of play and cooperation to foster social development.
My awards consist of hugs and smiles from my kiddos each day!!
I received may bachelors in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Language Arts. I then got my masters degree in Early Childhood Education. Both degrees were from Grand Valley State University. Go Lakers!
