I have been through the circuit for the last few years. My husband is active duty military, and with eight moves in 15 years, it makes it hard to settle. I have subbed for numerous years in ALL elementary grades and 'once' in sixth grade. In addition, I have taught in third and fourth and am currently teaching fifth grade.
I love having FUN!!! I love engaging my students in activities and lessons that make them explore the unknown. I have learned that students benefit from what focuses on their immediate learning needs!! Make every day count - not just the ones that seem 'important.'

I am a military spouse, and we are always on the GO! We have lived in 7 states in the last 15 years, not including the 2-year stint my husband served in Germany/Africa. (I did not accompany him).
