This will be my 12th year teaching. I student taught in 6th grade.Then, I began my teaching career in 1/2 combination classroom and then moved into a 4/5 combination. I taught just 4th and 3/4 combination. I also taught 1st grade and then landed in 3rd grade. I am going into my 4th year in 3rd grade and it feels good after all the years of bouncing around!
I am a hands on teacher who loves to teach using visual tools and munipulatives.
I have been teaching since 2006 after graduating with a Bachelor's of Arts degree from Aquinas College. I have been in various grades 1-6, but have landed in 3rd grade. I graduated in summer of 2019 with a Masters in Learning Disabilities.
I am not just a teacher, but I am married to a principal of a K-8 building. We have 4 amazing children who always keep us on our toes. Blog: FlytoThird You can join my newsletter to receive more classroom tips and freebies by subscribing in my blog.
