This is my third year teaching, and I love integrating old with the new! I've taught in Hawaii and Minnesota, and love to bring ideas from my experiences into the classroom. I've taught Kindergarten and 3rd grade, but also have experience in classrooms throughout Elementary.
I believe in finding that "sweet spot" of using you classroom curriculum, technology and good, old-fashion instinct in preparing for each lesson! Teaching students to be advocates for themselves and their classmates is number one, and learning to be flexible is number two! As a current 3rd Grade Teacher, my intent is to mold my students into responsible and independent problem-solvers, so they can succeed as they continue through their education.
Highly Certified Teacher Certificate 2014
Elementary Education Degree from University of Minnesota, and currently in the process of completing my M.Ed, also through the University of Minnesota.
In my spare time I love to paint, paddle board and travel. :) If you have any questions, please email me at Teacherapolis@gmail.com
