I have taught for a total of 4 years, and prior to that I had 4 years of substitute/student teaching experience. I have worked in both private and public schools, and I have taught 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Most of my experience has been in 7th and 8th grades! I am certified in Language Arts, Math, and Social Studies. I have taught all 3 content areas, but my focus for the past 3 years has been Language Arts and Math.
I like to create student focused lesson plans that engage students in hands-on learning. I believe "self discovery" leads to the best retention of information. I enjoy doing brain research to better know how to serve my students and their multiple intelligences.
Yet to be added
I have a BA from Northern Kentucky University in Middle Grades Education with a minor in math and political science, and areas of concentration in math, language arts, and social studies (earned in May 2009). I have a law degree to NKU's Salmon P. Chase College of Law (earned in May 2012). I am working on my Master's in Administration, and I will hopefully graduate in May 2018.
I am married to a wonderful man, and I am a new mom to a beautiful daughter, Elle. We have a dog named Pharaoh!
