I have been teaching elementary school for 6 years now and love every minute of it. I graduated with my Master's Degree in Education in 2008 and look forward to furthering my degree in the future.
I run an independence based classroom where my students learn what's expected of them and can very quickly run the classroom themselves. I believe in creating meaningful experiences in which my students learn through questioning each other, movement, music, critical thinking activities, and problem solving. I also believe in challenging every single student and instilling pride in each one of them. I'm not in the classroom to be their teacher for 10 months, I'm there to inspire them for the rest of their lives.
Best personality out of my senior class of over 300. :) I've had great evaluations in the classroom. I've been asked to mentor some of my fellow teachers, as well as have an open door for any of my peers to come observe me teach.
I have a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree in Education and plan to further my education in the future.
I have been married for 16 years and have 4 kids. I love spending time with my family, traveling, photography, home decorating, and of course teaching.
