I taught Technology in two elementary schools, grades K-6, for five years. I am now in my second year of teaching 6th grade in one of the buildings I used to teach Tech. I love it!
I try to step back and let my students learn how to be more independent to prepare them for middle school. I utilize the Daily 5 and will be trying to implement Cafe this year as well. This also goes along with students learning to manage their time and learning as well as working in small groups. I have also been implementing the Flipped Classroom model as much as possible and I really like it. If all students do their part and prepare for class you can spend more time doing enrichment activities to help further their knowledge.

I have been married almost 20 years! We have two wonderful boys, Christian and Gabriel, who are 14 and 12. We love big dogs and have lots of pets in our home. We have a Black Lab named Cinder, a Cane Corso Mastiff named Bella, and our newest addition is our Neapolitan Mastiff pup named Maggie. I love to read, work on the computer, play video games, and I even find the time to make and sell jewelry. I make almost all of my own posters and handouts for school because of having no budget money for supplies.
