I'm currently a kindergarten teacher at a Gifted and Academically Talented Magnet School in Jacksonville, Florida. Prior to this, I have worked as a Media Specialist, Technology Teacher, a Reading Recover Teacher, and taught multiple grade levels. My heart is with primary students, however! I love to instill a love of learning and connect with parents to provide a solid educational foundation. :)
Hmm....I'd have to say pretty unique and a bit offbeat! I plan one thing, but sometimes the kids lead me in another direction, as we explore topics that arise in class. I love movement, hands-on activities, and love singing and dancing with our favorite online videos to warm up for learning!
Teacher of the Year and....I should probably have these: * Stay Too Late and Need to Go Home Award * No Life During the School Year Award * Acts Like a Kindergarten Student Award * Don't Go on the Bouncy Slide and Sprain Your Wrist Again Award * Stop Trying to Capture Stray Kittens That Enter Your Class During Summer Cleaning and Then Bite Your Finger Award
Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, Reading Recovery Training; Certification: Elementary Education, Primary Education, Media Specialist, ESE, and currently working on my Gifted Endorsement!
