I taught 5 years as an English Second Language specialist/teacher. Then I taught 2 years in 4th grade. Currently I am teaching 3rd grade, where I have been for the last 10 years. Loving every minute!
I love to teach in a way that 100% of students are engaged. I do this through attracting different learning styles and showing my students my enthusiasm for learning.
I have been nominated twice for the Standard Examiner, Apple For The Teacher Award
Bachelors of Education MEd
I live in a beautiful area with a mountain view and the lake nearby. I'm married to my best friend and have 4 adorable children that are my world! I love to make simple things fancy. Whether it's a dinner party, a scrapbook page, a class activity, or even breakfast for my kids, I'm always looking for ways to "fancy it up" a bit.
