I have taught pre-school through 3rd grade in self-contained classrooms. I have also been a literacy coach and mentor teacher supporting teachers of kindergarten through 5th grade.
Much of my teaching occurs within a framework of a "workshop" model. Active learning and differentiation are at the core of my instruction.
I was a member of the 1st cohort group of the Learning Leadership Cadre of my school district. I was honored as the "Teacher of the Year" by the Indiana State PTA Council in 2010.
B.S. in Elementary Education from Indiana University M.S. in Early Childhood Education from Indiana University
