I have taught a total of 10 years- two in kindergarten, and eight in first grade! I have been lead teacher on my grade level for two years, and am currently a model classroom for personalized learning within my district. I absolutely love teaching; it is not just my job but my hobby and passion. I am relatively new to TPT, but have been creating things for my classroom since day one. I am so excited to start my TPT journey and share my creations with others.
I will forever believe in the power of a morning meeting, bucket filling, and the love and logic approach. Creating a conducive learning environment where students feel loved and valued, comfortable, and excited to learn is vital. I work in a title one personalized learning school, where students work through academic standards at their own pace through small group and independent work. I want students to understand what they are learning, and take ownership of it in a fun way. My classroom is based on hard work, making progress, and constantly celebrating successes, big or small!

I graduated from College of Charleston with a degree in Early Childhood Education.
I am a new mommy of a sweet baby girl! She is my pride and joy. This will be my tenth year as a teacher, and I could not imagine another life! I love to read, go to the beach, and hang out with friends. I spend way too much time on Pinterest and too much money in Target!
