TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 15 years. In that time, I've taught in both suburban and urban districts. Currently I teach in an inner city elementary school in Poughkeepsie, New York. The majority of my teaching experience has been in the primary grades. For the past 6 years I have taught 1st grade. {My 1st love!} Prior to that, I taught 2nd grade for 5 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in making my classroom environment an engaging and exciting place to be. I like to provide students with hands-on activities that are engaging and educational. Movement is a big part of my teaching. Little bodies need to move!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Though I haven't received any official awards, I have had many parents thank me for being their child's teacher, and that's reward enough. ☺

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) in Elementary Education from Bemidji State University, Bemidji, Minnesota. My Masters of Science (M.S. ed.) is in Elementary Reading and Literacy from Walden University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm fortunate enough to have a career I love, teaching. And, furthermore, I'm very fortunate to have a hobby I enjoy, creating teaching goodies. I feel very lucky to be able to do what I do!
