I have been teaching for several years; I taught 3rd grade and loved teaching them! When I moved to 1st grade, I found my teaching home! I LOVE teaching 1st grade!
We don't use any worksheets at our school, and strive to make everything an authentic representation of our students' understanding. I use lots of foldables, craftivities, workstations, and writing to engage my sweet students.
I was TWU Student Teacher of the Year when I graduated. But emails from parents and sweet notes from my littles are the awards that REALLY matter. :)
I went to Texas Woman's University where I got an amazing education from some seriously knowledgable, passionate, and supportive professors.
I love my hubby and our Goldendoodle, Tucker!
