I currently teach first grade in a large urban school district. I have previously taught kindergarten.
I like to incorporate movement and Kagan's cooperative learning strategies into my lessons. I find that my students learn more (and behave better) when they are up and moving and interacting with peers. I am on year 3 of implementing the Daily 5 in my classroom and love it!

I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Special Reading K-12. I am certified to teach Early Childhood (Birth-3rd) and Elementary (1st-6th).
Outside of teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading, running and line dancing.
