I have been an elementary teacher for 17 years (yikes). I am currently teaching 4th grade, but taught 1st grade for 13 years, prior to my "big kid" move. I also have experience teaching Kindergarten, 5th, and special education.
An interesting mix.... I love to have fun in a controlled setting. I have high expectations for my kiddos and I try to help them develop high expectations for themselves. I encourage them to enjoy learning, meet challenges and take risks.
Smiles, notes, ah-ha moments, and hugs ;). I am honored by my students' success - even if they don't all remember me.

I am a mom, wife, teacher and dog-lover from South Dakota.
