10 years as an elementary and middle school teacher. I have taught multiple subjects and mastered integrating several subjects in order to meet requirements in the little time I have to teach everything. I have taught 7th grade science, 4th grade all and some years departmentalized as a science/social studies/reading teacher, writing teacher, and language arts teacher.
I love to integrate, integrate, integrate:) I love using technology to dig deeper and engage the students. I love creative, higher-level thinking enrichment assignments and projects and I strongly believe in choice for the students. I want them to love learning and desire to continue throughout their life.
Teacher of the Year for my campus. Teacher of the Month every year. Grant recipient for writing, technology, and science.
General EC-4, ESL, and 4-8 science certified.
Mother of twin daughters and a younger daughter. Married for 13 years. Love to research teaching ideas, create teacher stuff, workout, and learn about healthy living and eating. I also have a houseful of fur babies:)
