I started my education journey where I was born and raised in North Dakota. There I spent a year working with a variety of mild to severe disabilities. I then worked as a Reading/Math Title One Teacher. Then, it was time for a real adventure. My husband and I moved across the country to Arizona. We have been here two years now and I have taught 3rd grade one year and 4th grade one year.
My goal is to make student learning fun and engaging. I motivate students by incorporating a variety of modalities. For example my lessons incorporate hands on activities, technology, group work, choice boards, etc.
