I am a 27 year teaching veteran who still loves what I do everyday! I have been a classroom teacher, a special education teacher, a reading specialist and currently work in Gifted Education. I hold a degree in Elementary Education and a master's degree in both Special Education and Reading as well as my gifted and SEI endorsements.
Im a project based, standards based teacher that believes that if your students believe you love them they will climb. Classrooms should be fun and engaging! School should be a place to grow. The kids are the best part of the job!
