Although I taught my younger siblings when I was young, I have only been a classroom teacher for 15 years. I started in 3rd grade, moved to 5th, and now coach teachers at a district level in instructional strategies, classroom organization, and classroom management.
Student centered, highly engaging, higher order thinking, and collaboration.
2004 Teacher of the Year, 2008 District Teacher of the Year
BFA in Music and Theatre MAT in Teaching
I love my family and I love my students. I am a pretty private person, but love sharing great resources with other teachers.
