I am entering my 15th year of teaching. After teaching 5th grade for many years, I am headed back to 4th. I have worked with EL newcomers and mainstream students in grades K-5 over my career.
I eat, sleep, and breathe teaching! I love to create things for my classroom—from decor to classroom management and organizational systems. I love finding clean, bright, streamlined solutions for student learning and teacher organization.
My colleague and I have led two student teams to be international ThinkQuest finalists, in 2008 and 2009.
Master's Degree in English as a Second Language and Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education
Not only do I love teaching, but I enjoy blogging and collaborating with others in the online teaching community. I have been blogging at www.ladybugsteacherfiles.com since 2010—I would love for you to stop by!
