This is my 3rd year as a full time teacher! First year teaching 1st grade in Minnesota. I am a teacher that loops (which means I start off in first grade with a class, then the next year I teach 2nd grade to that same class). It has been a fun and exciting experience :)
My teaching style is to always have fun! I love teaching through fun inqury based lessons and centers. I think the students learn more through playing, interacting and moving than anything else!
Creating (with a team) standardized tests for Kindergarten - 3rd grade to be used through my district.
I studied Elementary Education at the University of Minnesota. I am currently working on my Masters Degree also at the University of Minnesota.
I am so in love with the musical Wicked. I have seen it about 6 times and am in love with it! Music fills my classroom along with silly antics.
