I have been teaching for 12 years in a Title I school in Pennsylvania. The greatest part of my experience lies in third grade where I taught for almost a decade. I looped up with third graders to fourth grade life, and the kids continue to make me laugh every day. Teaching truly is the best profession!
Active students are happy ones. I believe in a hands-on learning approach, and encouraging a positive mindset toward reading, writing, and school. I use literature circles to encourage meaningful dialogue when reading authentic narratives and text.

My husband and I enjoy hikes with our dog, and reading by the fire with our four cats. My favorite place is Michigan's northern woods.
