TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been at the same school throughout my 16 years of teaching. It is like a second home to me. The teachers, students, families and community members all work together to make the school a place of learning and love. I have a Masters degree in Elementary education. I am a regular education teacher but have integrated special needs students full time into my classroom for over 10 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in the hands on approach. I love project based learning. I also believe character education is an important part of our school day.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

A colleague and I entered and won a contest where we were awarded money for our school. With that money, our school was able to buy itouch carts.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's degree in psychology. Master's degree in elementary education
