TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my tenth year of teaching! I taught 2nd and 3rd grade for 5 years in a school district in Overland Park, Kansas then taught 2nd grade in West Des Moines, Iowa for a year. Next, I moved to Colorado to teach 2nd grade for two years in a district in Aurora. Last year I moved back to Iowa and taught 4th grade and currently this year I am our school's instructional coach with a focus on literacy.
