I fell in love with the art of teaching through the admiration of my 5th grade teacher. She held such poise and composure, knowledge and beauty. Both inside and out. I was hooked after that! I had the opportunity to teach in our high school's child care center during my junior and senior years. Again, I was extremely fortunate to have a kind, motivating teacher guiding me along in all the right directions; and then it was off to university. Our university had it's very own K-6 school right in the heart of campus, so I spent many hours observing and teaching there throughout my educational process. How fortunate it was to be working with the best of the best throughout my learning process. After graduating, I married my best friend and substituted for a year. I took a 9 year break to stay home with my 3 children, then jumped back in with both feet when my youngest headed to kindergarten. I substituted day-to-day for two years in the district in which I grew up, and the following year was asked to fulfill a long-term substitute position in 5th grade. The year after, I was a long-term substitute in 3rd grade where I was hired into a full-time position as a 1st grade teacher for the upcoming year. I continued in 1st grade for too many years to recall! I made the leap to kindergarten when common core began. I've got more than 20 years of teaching experience, and so much more to share. My children are all grown and I have plenty of time to be creative and help others, just as so many kind hearts have helped me. :)


My motto is "hands-on, minds-on learning." I enjoy seeing my little ones busy, busy, busy! I like to think of my classroom as a home away from home. I know that if they're not happy and comfortable in my classroom, they're not going to be able to give me their best. I like to give them explicit directions, then set them free to explore and discover in an organized way!
