I love my days!! Mother by morning, teacher by afternoon and mom by night. I have taught second grade for the past 25 years. I am truly living my childhood dream. I love helping my kiddos engage and explore for more knowledge and opportunities.
Busy! I believe kids learn more by doing, participating and engaging in conversation. My classroom is not a quiet, timid one. We move, discuss, explore and often times giggle daily! Visit my blog to see my classroom up close! Lory's 2nd Grade Skills
Sally Mae Award
After graduating from high school (the same district that I teach in...) I attended Brigham Young University to earn my BS degree in Elementary Education.
I love creating items for my classroom. I enjoy watching my students engage in their assignments and explore for more knowledge. After teaching district math classes and writing the 2nd grade math curriculum for the district... I realized my great love of math. I have since published a book with Scholastic titled ONE PAGE MATH GAMES. I am a wife, mother of 3 darling children and count my blessings everyday!
