Hello! I am a third year first grade PA transplant teacher living and teaching in NC! My classroom has been a whirlwind of experiences so far. I am falling more and more in love with teaching children everyday and I am excited to share the things I made for my classroom on TPT!
For classroom management and general delivery of lessons, I do follow the Whole Brain Teaching methods by Chris Biffle. I have found much success with student engagement and retention of learning while using the oral/kinetic teaching strategies.
I haven't received any official awards in my first two years of teaching. I did have several parents beg me to move up to 2nd grade with their children though. I believe that's better than an award in my eyes! :)

I have one adorable 3 legged cat named Harry. In my spare time when I am not teaching or working on lesson planning, I like to read, visit the VA beaches, go to local concerts. I also enjoy traveling in the summer months. Last summer I went to England, France, Spain, Greece, Turkey, and Italy. I found tons of wonderful trinkets on my travels that I have since decorated my home and classroom with!
