After obtaining my degree in Social Studies and Library Media, I have been teaching for seven years. I love teaching Literacy through Social Studies. I also enjoy teaching a "Tools for Learning" class that equips students with necessary tools for reading, writing, and test-taking.
I would say I teach...on top of the box.. and sometimes I fall off the side :) I blend my teaching styles throughout the year. I love to give content through powerpoints and note outlines as an introduction to an event in history. However, to truly dig into the content I take a student-centered approach. I include scaffolding, rubrics, small group discussions, team-building activities, and more.

I LOVE teaching sixth grade. I am teaching at the school I graduated from, which is cool on many levels. My super sweet husband of six years is also a teacher here. I also have an elementary basketball program called Little Dribblers. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my three year old son, Jackson. And I love Jesus because He first loved me!
