I've been teaching in Colorado since 1995. Each year provides new challenges and ways for me to grow as an educator. I am grateful to have a passion for teaching and love to share my ideas with others. Currently I share a first grade classroom with an amazing partner. We have the best of both worlds--teaching a few days a week and having ample time to take care of our families on our non-teaching days. If you have any questions, just ask. As I said earlier, I love sharing!
My faith comes first in all that I do. Without the encouragement of my Father, I would not be able to do this job well. Love and Logic is the best way to describe my teaching style. Logical consequences for student behaviors and my own, as well! I am also a firm believer in making learning meaningful while focusing on improving student achievement. I hope you enjoy what you see, and if you do, please share it with a friend. Word of mouth is the best advertisment possible! Thanks for checking me out!
I have the honor of working with 6 and 7 years old. There is no greater reward than that.

I'm the wife to one amazing Mann and the mom to two fantastic kids. I have two dogs that rule the roost. Teaching is a blessing that makes me smile!
