I have been teaching for nine years. The first six years of my career I taught Kindergarten and absolutely loved it! I thought I would never want to leave until my principal decided to move me to first grade. Once I started teaching first grade I quickly realized that I loved first grade just as much as Kindergarten and guess what???? Now I can not imagine teaching anything else.
I believe in teaching to the child not the test. Children have different learning styles and it is my job as an educator to tap in the learning style that works best for each child. I like to make things fun and challenging!
It has been an honor to teach with an amazing group of teachers for the past nine years and to have such sweet students! I have been blessed to make so many wonderful connections with such great people!
I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters in Elementary Education. I hope to begin working on my National Boards in a few years.
I met my husband while teaching. He was the P. E. teacher at the elementary school where I started teaching. He has switched his career path since then but it was really fun to work together for a short period of time. We just recently had a baby this past summer and it has been a fast year of firsts for us!
