I began teaching in 2008, but before that, I spent 4 years working with different children's ministries birth through 6th grade.
I believe in hands-on, active classrooms. We do stations and rotations nearly every day. I love learning right along with my students and letting them have as much choice as possible.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I graduated high school as the Valedictorian of my class, and graduated college with a 4.0.
I have my masters in reading and National Board certification.
I love anything involving crafts, playing with my two dogs, or working in my garden.
