I am currently in my 12th year of teaching 3rd grade. I am passionate about doing what's best for our kids and making sure they have the same opportunities any other student may have.
Strict but fair...and fun! I like routine and procedure and we know how to have fun. Lessons are hands on, kids are up and moving, and I have learned how to give more control of the decisions to the kids.
In 2014 I was recognized for a Classroom Spotlight by our district. Our class presented to the school board and community how we use 360 Degree Math in our classroom. In 2012, along with another teacher, we were recognized for Classroom Spotlight by our district. Our classes presented how we use CPS Responders to enter multiple choice answers. In 2009 I was awarded Excellence in Education by my district. I was recognized for high student achievement, effective use of instructional strategies, implementation of unique programs to foster student achievement, positive interaction with students, staff, and parents, and activities that extend beyond the classroom.
I made the plunge and have gone back to school! Currently I am enrolled in the Instructional Media grad program at Wilkes University. I am loving every minute of it! Way back in 2004, I graduated with honors from Arizona State University. I earned a BA in Elementary Education.
