I'm currently in the midst of my 8th year teaching middle school. I've had the pleasure of teaching all three middle grades and seen how the curriculum advances from one year to the next. I am currently teaching on-level, advanced, and gifted 6th graders and wouldn't trade my students for the world.
I'm doing my absolute best to implement interactive notebooks and foldables this year. I have found the my students enjoy learning integers much more if they get to write out this information in marker instead of pencil. They get to make their notes colorful AND they are learning at the same time. Whatever works, right?!?!
I've recently been named as my school's teacher of the month. I've worked incredibly hard over the past few years and it feels wonderful for my coworkers and administration to recognize my hard work.
I have both a Bachelor's and Master's in the elementary education (with a concentration in math and science) from the University of Florida. GO GATORS!
