I have taught first grade for 8 years, second grade for one year, and worked with first through fifth graders as a Reading Specialist for three years.
My style is one of organization and differentiation using colorful, hands-on activities. Always teach to a child's heart through patience and pure enjoyment for teaching.
Yet to be added
I attended Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho 1998 - 2002. I graduated with a BA in Elementary Education. I completed my MA in Curriculum and Instruction with a Specialization in Integrating the Arts through Lesley University (Cambridge, MA) in 2006. I hold a current Idaho Reading Endorsement. I also am a participant in the Idaho Common Core Teacher Program.
I live in a small ski town in the beautiful Idaho mountains. I love to spend time outdoors with friends and family. Check out my teacher blog..... TOTAL WORK IN PROGRESS! Another first step for this gal. http://wideeyesandwonders.blogspot.com/
