I am in my 13th year teaching kindergarten. I spent 5 years teaching K4 and am in my 8th year of K5. Kindergarten is where the magic happens and I love watching the little lights come on throughout the year! I am also an ADEPT evaluator and Adjunct Technology Trainer for my district so I have the joy of helping other teachers grow in their practice. I love what I do!
Children learn differently and at different rates. I try to teach children in a manner consistent to their unique learning style. I also incorporate lots of movement and music into the curriculum to get the kids up and learning even more!
Served on several curriculum and assessment workgroups for my school district. I am also an ADEPT third evaluator and an Adjunct Technology Trainer for the district. Seesaw Ambassador, Osmo Ambassador, Google Educator Level 1.
BA and M.Ed in Early Childhood Education
I am married to Jeremy and we have 2 beautiful children, Ava and Joshua. When I'm not inspiring the young minds of America you'll find me sewing, monogramming and doing all kinds of other crafty things. I love singing and lead worship with our praise band at my church. I think music is a very effective teaching strategy and I use it a lot in kindergarten! I've created lots of my own songs and hope to one day share them with others.
