I am a first grade teacher in Ohio with a passion for keeping my kids excited about learning and school! I received my Master's Degree at The Ohio State University and began my career in Northern Virginia in one of the largest districts in the country. I now teach 1st grade in a small town in Ohio and am sooooo happy to be home :)
Authentic learning experiences, character-building, hands-on, letting kids be KIDS, expression of creativity, engaging in critical thinking, encouraging a LOVE of reading and learning!
Yet to be added
B.A., Strategic Communications (Ohio State) B.A., English (Ohio State) M.Ed, Early Childhood Education (Ohio State) Go Bucks! :)
My husband is also an elementary school teacher and we have a son, Teddy, who turned 1 on Halloween! I love what I do every day and who I spend my days with---wouldn't have it any other way!
