This is my 9th year teaching. I taught first grade for 3 years and am now in my 6th year of teaching 2nd grade.
I LOVE teaching and my favorite thing is teaching children to read. I believe that students learn best by doing. I'm really into communicating with parents and involving them in their child's learning.
Yet to be added
I graduated in business marketing from Oregon State. I worked in marketing for a few years and then decided to go back to get my Masters of Arts in Teaching. I went to George Fox University and graduated in 2004. I was lucky enough to get a job right away and am currently in my 9th year teaching at the same school.
I am happily married and have two little kids, a 4 1/2 year old boy and a 2 1/2 year old girl. One of my favorite things is hearing about their days and visiting their preschool/daycare. I love putting together creative art times for them and I am SO thrilled at how much they both love reading!
