I started out teaching preschool in 2007. In 2011, I moved to 5th grade. Wow! What a transition!
I want my students to learn to love learning through their own learning. I love seeing kids get excited about history, reading, and writing, so I share my passion for these subjects with them. It's amazing how kids come to love school when their teacher loves what she is teaching!

I teach 5th grade reading and writing, which also includes my favorite subject: social studies! I love introducing my 5th graders to the wonderful world of literature. I also love getting my students excited about history through our Social Studies Notebooks.
