I started out teaching middle school special education for 3 years. I worked with mostly learning disabled students. Then I moved into the general education classroom to teach third grade. I have been in this position for ten years.
I teach with Capturing Kids Hearts. I believe that students need to buy into and help create their classroom climate to make it their own. I have a desire to make learning fun and engaging. Any time technology fits in we are using it in my classroom.
Yet to be added
I attended Hope College for my undergraduate work in Special Education with a Learning Disabilities endorsement. Later I went on to Grand Valley State University for my masters in Educational Technology.
I taught middle school special education for three years when I first started teaching. Then I made the switch to teach 3rd grade in a general education setting where I have been ever since. This is my tenth year as a third grade teacher.
