I have been teaching in a self-contained gifted Kindergarten since 2007.
I love to give my students an opportunity for hands on learning and exploration. While I am bound by the Common Core Standards I still work within the framework of a child-driven environment. I never teach the same way from year to year. Each year brings a new set of students with a variety of learning styles. Therefore, I reflect and adjust to meet the needs of my students.

I've been told I was born to teach. Given that I not only teach but I spend my summers working with children and teens at my own summer camp, I guess this is true! Still, I came to teaching later in life. I believe that we all are on the path that we are meant to travel. So while I wish I started teaching sooner, I have to believe that my life experiences have made me the teacher I am today. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to teach! I especially love teaching my little Kindergarters! They are so eager to learn.
