TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I believe I was born to teach. I am currently in my seventeenth year of teaching and still love going to work each day. I taught third grade for nine years before I moved to the fabulous fourth grade. I work with a great team that plans together and shares which really saves time. I am currently a lead teacher at my school and I have also been a mentor teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal is for my students to have fun while learning each day. In my class, we learn through hands-on discovery, exploration, learning from our mistakes, and playing a lot of games. I want them to feel safe and know that I am there for them.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT
