This is my 7th year teaching! I've taught 5th grade in Colorado, ESOL in Spain, and 4th grade for three years. I am currently living in the South, teaching online, and am loving every second of it! Please check out my teaching blog at AppleSlices4th.blogspot.com for details about teaching, freebies, and new products!
I love teaching through exploration and letting my kiddos learn on their own with my support and encouragement!
Mentor teacher, ESOL Certification
I went to school at the University of South Carolina and got a degree in Elementary Education! Go Gamecocks :)
I love to teach writing and believe that all students can LOVE writing too. I currently teach writing online while staying home with my son. I have lived all over and feel lucky to have learned so much about different people and different towns. I believe this makes me a well-rounded teacher. I love to spend my free time with my husband and son, at the beach, hiking, watching college football, going on adventures, reading, taking pictures and hanging out with my amazing friends and my adorable cat and dog, Ridley and Bear.
