I've been teaching for 8 years. I've taught K, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I've taught all subjects. My FAVORITE is science!
I believe 100% in hands-on learning. I incorporate group work into daily lessons. I love interactive investigations, student-lead inquiry, and when my teaching leads my students to lead my classroom.
Nominated for teacher of the year. SMART grant
I grew up in rural Indiana. I attended a small high school and graduated with 55 students. I went to a teacher college, Ball State University, where I graduated with an Early Childhood degree. I moved to Florida and have been teaching ever since.
I have a husband who also teaches science and two small children. We love learning!
