This is my 15th year of teaching. I started off my teaching career in Kindergarten. I loved it and stayed there for 8 years. I then had the privilege of becoming a Reading Recovery teacher for 2 years. That experience and training further developed my passion for helping struggling readers. I then took that knowledge back into the classroom as a 1st grade teacher for 3 years. I have now entered the virtual world! This is my second year as a virtual school teacher; this year I am working with first grade students again (my favorite grade). Yay!
Do whatever it takes!
National Board Certified Teacher
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s of Science in Education. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher. I hold a Florida professional teaching certificate in PreKindergarten/Primary Education, Elementary Education (Grades 1-6), ESOL (Grades K-12), as well as a Reading endorsement.
I love to write poetry and include it in the classroom. Nothing fancy... just simple, rhythmic, and fun! Most of my products are centered on poetry or include poems that are all original. I hope you enjoy them and find them useful in your classroom!
