I have 7+ years experience in teaching 2nd and 3rd grade. I recently moved from the U.S. to Australia and have started relief teaching.
I believe that every student has the ability to learn and achieve success. I like to incorporate differentiated lessons to meet the needs of all students. I enjoy using technology to enhance the learning in whole group, small groups, and independently. I understand the importance of worksheet practice and testing, but I prefer to provide various forms of learning for all skills, including hands-on experience, brainstorming, problem-solving in small group discussion, and more!

I enjoy blogging and basic web design. I like utilizing my design skills by creating products useful in the classroom. Normally, I'd make items for my class and share with my team. Now I like to share with everyone! After teaching in Florida for 5 years, I moved my life to Australia. I'm currently doing relief teaching in hopes to understand the education system and curriculum here. Hopefully, I can get my own classroom again!
