I've been teaching for six years. I'm currently in my third year of teaching first grade and I love everything about it!
I'm a very active teacher. I use many Whole Brain Teaching strategies in my classroom to help engage and motivate my students. I'm very positive and have an overwhelming need to make sure my students feel loved and safe when they enter my classroom. I'm also very organized. I've been learning through the years what works for me in my classroom to keep all of my things, papers, resources in order and I love to share with other teachers and learn from other teachers as well.
I was nominated teacher of the year last year. I love to help over teachers in any way I can. I graduated with honors from Plymouth State University.
I have a BS in Childhood Studies from Plymouth State University. I'm working on my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I'm a working mom of a two and four year old. My husband is in the oil industry and works away from home two weeks at time. We live happily in the south with two adopted cats.
