Before teaching, I was a stay at home mom for twelve years. During that time, I spent five of those years homeschooling my two children. My professional teaching experience includes two years of teaching preschool, two years of teaching fifth grade, and I am now in my third year of teaching first grade. All grades have their advantages, and I get excited to watch children learn! I thoroughly enjoy what I do, and I cannot imagine doing anything else.
I adapt my teaching to suit the learning styles of the students in my classroom, which means that I am always adapting and changing what I do. I love collaborative, hands-on lessons, but I also love creating and using worksheets because I realize that students enjoy both, and they need a way to prove what they know. My products were designed for use in my own classroom, and I hope you not only enjoy them, but that they make your life a little easier. We are all in this together for the same goal: well-educated students. Happy Teaching!
