After a year of subbing I started teaching full time in my home town in 2009. I have taught 3rd grade for 6 years and 4th grade for 2 years. I am currently teaching 3rd grade in an intermediate building.
My teaching style mixes many different ideas together based on what my goals are at the time. No matter what I am teaching and no matter how I teach it - I always believe in making my expectations for learning and behavior clear and well known to my students and parents.
Yet to be added
I graduated from High School in 2005 and started at Southern Illinois University Carbondale a week later. I graduated from the education program in August 2008. I immediately started subbing for a year locally. At the end of my first year of subbing I was hired in my hometown to start my journey as an intermediate teacher.
I am a teacher with a love of prints, patterns, and color themed areas in the classroom. I love having a label or tag for everything to make my classroom well organized an easy to navigate.
