I have taught 1st grade since 2011-2012 school year and 3rd-8th graders from 2000-2011, including summer enrichment classes. I've also presented workshops for teachers in technology and brain-based learning.
Yet to be added
Bachelors degree in Elementary Education grades 1-8 with Gifted Certification (2000); Masters degree in K-12 Studies in Education (2010).
I've been teaching since 2000. I started out teaching mostly middle school enrichment classes and technology, and since 2011 I've been teaching first grade and love it! My husband and I live in Northeast Ohio with two little fur-doggies. Most times you'll find me with my Starbucks cup stalking other teachers online or creating classroom products for myself and sharing them with others.
