I have worked in education for 12 years. I began as a preschool teacher for the school district and then became an education specialist for the Head Start program. After obtaining a masters in Early Childhood Education, I went back to teaching and have been teaching in the elementary grades for the past 5 years. I currently teach First Grade.
I use a Reggio Emilia approach to my teaching. I encourage independence and will often put student in charge of the lesson (after a great deal of modeling of course). I use Conscious Discipline (Becky Bailey) in my classroom as well as Whole Brain Teaching.
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelors in Family Studies and a Masters in Early Childhood Education.
I am a mom, a grandma, a wife, and a teacher. I love what I do.
