Most of my teaching experience has been in the upper elementary/lower middle school grades. However, some of my materials may be appropriate for all grade levels.
I like to keep procedures and lessons structured, but always keep in mind that flexibility is important. You just never know when creativity, a new great idea, an interesting conversation, or a need for some research will present itself!

BA in Communications Writing; MA in teaching.
Outside the classroom, I am passionate about animal rescue, and often volunteer for a local rescue group in my area. I also love the beach in all seasons, am always in the middle of reading a book, and can often be seen in my neighborhood walking my two dogs. My husband is a very patient and understanding man, who encourages all the time I spend on teaching preparation and animal rescue. I'm lucky to have him!
