I have been teaching for three years now. My first year was in Idaho with amazing third grade students.The last two years I have had the pleasure of teaching at the fifth grade level in Washington state. I absolutely love working with the upper elementary students!
I'm all about effective, targeted, exploratory, and engaging instruction. I love watching students work together, so I plan a lot of projects. I also know the importance of individual work and I try to do an even mix of whole group, small group, and individual instruction. Working at a school with a high range of mixed abilities has challenged me to find ways to instruct each student at their own level.
Yet to be added
I graduated from Eastern Washington University with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education, with a focus in literacy, and a minor in psychology.
I LOVE teaching and coming up with fun lesson plan ideas, and ways to be more effective as an educator. I'd love to support other educators and help them grow. I would love to be able to create resources to help teachers spend more time enjoying teaching.
