I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, and PK-5th Technology Applications. I was also an Instructional Coach and Elementary School Counselor. I am now teaching Kindergarten.
I love to use hands-on and inquiry based learning. I believe in making learning fun while still fulfilling the standards to the depth and rigor necessary for my students' success. I believe that students need to see things in several different formats and because it is my job as a teacher to learn how my students learn best, I strive to target lessons that are best for them!

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English because I thought I wanted to teach secondary English. Nope - I am a primary girl! Did I mention I earned it with a deployed husband and a toddler? Yep! I am proud! I then earned my Master of Arts in Elementary Education while my husband was recovering from his injuries from Iraq. I knew I'd be the breadwinner from here on out! Finally, I wanted to reach a personal goal of attaining my doctorate. Well, in 2012 I earned my Doctor of Education in Teacher Leadership. It was a personal goal just for me. I don't get extra pay or prestige, but it make me feel good to know I did it!
