TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my third year teaching 4th grade after graduating from college in May of 2011.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style includes as many "hands on" experiences for students as possible. I believe that students learn best when they are able to immerse themselves within the content directly.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I implemented the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge program into my school in the spring of 2013. It was promoted using my class of 4th grade students by creating bookmarks, making a video, posters, and more. Our school placed #1 in the state of Wisconsin after the reading challenge ended in September. A local news story was completed about us, and I was also quoted for a Scholastic eNewsletter. In addition, I made an appearance on a Google Hangouts discussion with Scholastic to share ideas with fellow schools and teachers.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended school k-12 in Rochester, Minnesota and moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin after graduation. I went to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire for five years, and graduated in May of 2011 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Middle Childhood Early Adolesence (licensure in grades 1-8), and a minor in Learning Disabilities.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am enjoying my first few years as a new teacher, and LOVE teaching 4th grade! I am blessed to have wonderful co-workers, and a great group of students.
