I have been teaching for 25 years and love it more each year. My experience includes twenty years in 4th grade, academic coach, intervention teacher, and I looped three times to 5th grade. I have mentored teachers at my school and other schools. I LOVE facilitating workshops and staff development. Teaching is my passion and I'm fortunate to do a job I love every day.
It's all about making it F-U-N! If I'm having fun, my students are having fun! I'm a very enthusiastic teacher with a passion for motivating my students to learn and love school. I create engaging, hands-on lessons that meet the needs of all my learners. I work hard at creating a class family each year and creating memories that will last a lifetime.There's a lot of action in our classroom, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
