I'm an elementary school teacher with a passion for education, creativity and technology. I have 15 years experience teaching K - 5th grade. In addition to developing interactive teaching resources, I also create and sell educational clipart.
I am a very creative teacher and vary activities in my classroom. I want my students to think and problem solve. They must actively engage with the content. I am anti chalk and talk and pro think, ask and learn. I am also very pro-technology and love sharing ideas with others!
