I am a proud graduate of Missouri Southern State University where I was able to spend a large amount of time in public classrooms. I spent one semester in 4th grade, one semester split between 3rd grade and kindergarten. I was also given a chance to be a preschool teacher and absolutely loved it! Additionally, I taught 5th grade for 2 years and then made the move to 3rd grade, and I LOVE IT -- I know I'm exactly where I should be! Have a happy year everyone! :)
My teaching style is fairly laid back with as many hands-on activities as possible. I enjoy watching my students learn by doing and discussing why things are the way they are. I am also a firm believer that respect is earned for both the teacher and the students.

I graduated high school in 2008 number 11 in my class. Finished up college 4 years later with a Bachelor's of Science in Early Childhood Education, and I am constantly learning in my own classroom of fifth graders.
I have a happy little life that I couldn't love more!
