After graduating with my Bachelor's Degree in Middle Childhood Education, I was blessed with my first job in a fantastic district! I am currently entering my fourth year teaching in that district where I have truly enjoyed exploring my teaching style in a sixth grade Language Arts and Social studies classroom!
I am a major proponent of discovery learning through challenging independent and group asignments. We move around the classroom everyday and I make it a goal to allow my students to put a creative and personal spin on learning. I have worked in inclusion classrooms and have taken on the talented and gifted students for the past two years. Technology is a fantastic support; however, my goal is to inspire a love in learning and my subject areas anyway possible!
It is an honor to be a teacher! -Outstanding Academic Award for Curriculum and Instruction (2008) -Who’s Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges (2008-2009) -Dean’s List (2005-2009) -Collegiate Middle Level Association (2005- 2008, President 2007-2008) -Kappa Delta Pi (Education Honorary Society) Phi Alpha Theta (National Honor Society for History)
After graduating Ashland University in the spring of 2009, I continued to attend conferences each year and am now in the middle of attaining my Masters in Administration. As a team leader at my school and a past Middle Level Association President at the Collegiate level, I have had the opportunity to delve into a multitude of experiences educating me on the importance of positive teaching.
As a new teacher I moved away from my family and found school as a second home. My classroom students are my "kids" and I have spent my evenings developing ways to keep them interested in school by creating activities I envisoned them enjoying. I hope you enjoy the lessons I have developed over the years. What a great site for giving teachers the opportunity to share ideas with others. Why invent the wheel when so many creative minds are willinging to share!
