I began working in Preschool at Old Dominion University's Child Development Center for two years while I finished college and graduate school. Then, I transitioned over in public school, teaching first grade for the past 4 years. I was lucky enough to loop up with my class into 2nd grade a few years ago and could not be more excited to be teaching 2nd grade! Last year (2016-2017) I was fortunate enough to be named Teacher of the Year.....Hello 9th Year of Teaching :)
I love to have my students engaged and active in their learning! Technology is HUGE in my classroom, using the Projection Board, Smart Notebook, PPT, and computer/laptops daily. I focus on differentiation in each content area lesson to meet the needs of each and every student!
