The 2018-2019 school year will be my 12th year of teaching! I taught 7 years in first grade, and this year will be my 5th year in second grade. I have also worked for the company Mimio along with teaching as an educator presenter before starting our family. I taught Quick Learn classes to teachers after school, and went to national teaching conventions throughout the year presenting to educators around the nation for Mimio.
I pride myself in creating a fun classroom environment that feels like a class family. I want my students to become life-long learners along with becoming independent, loving, respectful, and caring individuals. I currently have a flexible seating classroom. I love giving my students the ability to have freedom to learn. They get to truly be who they are as a student and learner. I enjoy using a lot of technology and presenting lessons in a fun and exciting way.
I was the 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year for my district. I am a certified PLTW teacher and love teaching STEM, coding, and robotics to my second graders.
I earned my Bachelors Degree in 2007 and since then have received my Masters in Education with an ESOL endorsement. I continue to take classes on how to use different technology in the classroom to stay current with my students' needs.
I have been happily married for 7 years. I am the mother of two amazing little boys, and we are expecting a little SISTER in November of this year!
