Over 22 years of education in the elementary grades!
I can be very flexible, if things are planned and organized! I appreciate every teachable moment, and welcome innovation and creativity across all spectrums!
For me, shining teacher moments reveal themselves when I come in contact with former students. I feel my face beaming when they share success stories or memories from when they were students of mine. I love pulling out examples of past work to share with my current students. When I see the name of the student from the past, the memories rush me, as if the moment had occurred yesterday. The little things in education, the "unmentionables", drive my passion and desire to live, love, LAUGH, and continue to learn!
BS in Elementary Education, Minor in Spanish, Master of Arts in Teaching with a specialization in Educational Technology
I believe it's the little things that make a big difference! From raising my own children, to implementing technology in our everyday lives, to developing the first grade minds of the children in my classroom - the little things we do everyday, those trivial details that tend to be overlooked, those foundational building blocks, can impact the lives of those we come in contact with every day.
