This is my 16th year of teaching. I have had the privilege of teaching in Ohio and Arizona. My experience has spanned the grades, with most of years in K-3.
I believe that education should be fun and real-world focused. I enjoy hands-on and project based teaching. I also support integrated, diverse learning environments.
I have been recognized as "Teacher of" the week, month, grade level and year several times throughout my 16 years. I piloted the Project Based classroom for my district.
I have my BSED from Baldwin Wallace University in Berea, Ohio. I also have a minor in psychology, 80 hours in specified reading training and a Special Education background.
I am happily married, 12 years to Chris who is in administration and we have 5 awesome children... The trio, Liah, Maia, and Corneilius are 2 legged and Gus (200lb puppy) and LoKitty are 4 legged!
