I've been teaching for 20+ years. I have been a K-6 art teacher, a kindergarten teacher (full and half day), a first grade teacher, a second grade teacher, and most recently, a computer teacher . I am obsessed with my Promethean board and create glorious interactive charts for every lesson, activity, and routine we have in the classroom. I have an insatiable love of art and literature. I always need to be reading or creating, otherwise I go crazy!
Creative is the best way to describe me. I feel like an improv performer when I'm teaching. I do impromptu voices, I sing (badly), I dance, I dramatize. In short, I do whatever it takes to get my munchkins to love learning.

I have 3 kids of my own and an amazing family. We spend way too much time together! You can always find me with a coffee in my hand, the stronger the better.
