I have worked as a teacher's assistant for children aged 2-5, facilitated a middle school and high school after school program, completed an internship in a fifth grade classroom, student taught in a second grade classroom, taught 6th grade for two years and I am currently in my 4th year of teaching 4th grade.
I believe that in order for all students to be successful, they need to be engaged! When the bum is numb,so is the brain! I LOVE Cooperative Learning activities, brain breaks, anything hands on, and teaching to as many learning styles as possible. I am currently reading The Wild Card by Hope and Wade King, and to say I'm inspired is an under statement! I am in LOVE with classroom transformations.
I graduated from college in December of 2011. I was on the Dean's List several times through out my college career and received many scholarships for academic achievement.
Graduated from college in December of 2011 with a BS in Elementary Education (1-6).
I am married to the love of my life, who is a police officer. I have a one year old little girl who lights up my life. I am an animal lover, and I love all things pink.
