I began teaching in Las Vegas in 1997. After 2 years, I moved back home to Ohio, and have spent the last 15 years teaching 3rd and 4th grades. I have created MANY teaching materials over the years, and intend to slowly add some of my favorites to TPT. I have just moved back up to 4th grade, and am back to recreating, as many things have changed since I taught 4th grade over 6 years ago.
I do a lot of group work. If nothing else, my students will learn to collaborate with others:)
I have served as level chair for many years, and have participated in many district committees.
I got my Bachelor's from the University of Toledo, and my Master's in Classroom Technology from Bowling Green State University. Since then I've earned 16 additional credit hours through various Universities, taking now the classes that I want to take!
I'm very fortunate to work in an amazing district, and then come home to a wonderful husband, daughter, son, and dog!
