TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught 4th grade for the past 6 years, with a few years of 5th grade prior to that.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love incorporating technology into the classroom! Also...you'll find creative, cooperative and project based learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I received an eMINTS Grant in 2006 which provided my classroom/students with an abundance of technology. (SMART Board, projector, 14 desktop computers, printer/copier/scanner, digital camera, new furniture and much more!)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's Degree - Elementary/Early Childhood Education - Northwest Missouri State - 2004 Master's Degree - Educational Technology - Grand Canyon University - 2010

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I recently relocated with my husband due to his job. I am now looking for ways to stay connected to the world of education, without actually having a teaching job this year. Thanks for stopping by my TPT store!
