I have over 15 years of experience in first grade and had a brief stint in third. The sheer amount of testing in third grade drove me back to first grade where I will happily spend the rest of my teaching career =)
According to my colleagues, I'm the teacher who "fixes things before they break" and reinvents the wheel just because =) I love incorporating technology and games into my lessons. Steve Spangler once said, "Students don't remember lessons. They remember experiences." And that's what I strive to do. Create engaging experiences for my students that they'll remember for years to come!
I won Teacher of the Year for my school in the 2014/2015 school year.
I have a bachelor's in Elementary Education K-6. I graduated from the University of South Florida ~ Go Bulls!
I live in Florida with my adorable but sassy daughter.
