I began my teaching career in fifth grade (self-contained) in a small town. The next five years, I taught sixth grade Math, including intervention in all middle school grade levels. I left the classroom to a large district as the district math specialist, and serviced grades 3 - 8 for five years through writing scope and sequences, curriculum writing, and coaching teachers. I left the district office to return to the campus as an assistant principal at an elementary campus (PreK - 5) for three years. I served as an Academic Dean at a Middle School, and currently am a Collaborative Learning Leader at an elementary school.

I plan games, activities, and units that my students and I will enjoy while learning.
