Teaching upper elementary has been my love and my calling, and I can't imagine doing anything else! I have been teaching for 25 years, and currently I teach 4th grade reading, language, and history.
I strive to engage students by using turn and talk strategies, partner reading/discussions, and materials such as graphic organizers to get kiddos thinking deeply about their reading.
National Board Certified Teacher
I have a Masters in Elementary Education, and I also earned my National Board Certification.
I am a Christian, wife, mother, teacher, crafter, cancer survivor.
