I have been teaching for ten years.I taught third grade for two years, first grade for seven, and I am going into my second year of second grade.I love my job more than I could have ever imagined!
I use a Daily Five structure to implement Balanced Literacy in my classroom. I was asked to be one of the writers of the ELA common core curriculum for my district. I have a strong understanding of the ELA standards for 1st grade.
I was my school's teacher of the year for the 2011-2012 school year. I won the elementary Emerson Excellence in Education award winner for my district for the 2014-2015 school year.
I have my Masters in Elementary Education.
I am a mommy to two perfect boys. I love every minute I spend with them!
