Over the past 6 years I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. I am currently taking over a maternity leave for one of our Instructional Coaches. It's a new adventure!
I am VERY dramatic in my classroom. I love acting things out and being hands on in my classroom to keep my students engaged. My philosophy is to make learning fun and to relate to my students (even if that means I'm watching the shows they like to create word problems in math! haha). The teachers that stand out to me the most from growing up are the ones that did something beyond the norm, and that is what I like to do everyday in my classroom! (Just picture me teaching my Fairy Tale unit in my pink, puffy prom dress :) )
I am a 2007 Golden Apple Scholarship recipient and Who's Who Amongst American Colleges and Universities 2010 recipient, District Service Award Nominee 2016 & 2017
Illinois State University- Go Birds!
I am extremely excited to get started with TPT! I love taking on new challenges and projects. I am a wife, a former NBA dancer, and a life long learner! Follow my class on: Twitter! Personal Instagram: LPro815
