I have been lucky enough to teach 4th grade in the same district for over 20 years. 4th graders are the best, in my humble opinion! I have a degree in elementary education and a masters in classroom technology.
My style has evolved over the years as all teacher. If I had to describe my style, I'd say that I try to take the best of all the teachers I've ever had, taught with or known and put them together in my own classroom to try to make a learning environment that has kids excited to learn each day.
I have lots of "#1 Teacher" mugs. I'm not sure if this counts as an "award" but I still feel pretty good about them.
graduated from Bowling Green State University in Dec. of 1994
