TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a first grade teacher in Charlotte, North Carolina. I have experience teaching first and second grade, as well as first/second combination classes.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love that I can come to school each day and it be completely different from the day before. I love that I can be as silly as I want and that just makes the learning for my students a fun and exciting time.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have had the honor of being a cooperating teacher and a mentor.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a 2005 graduate of Clarion University, which is located in north western Pennsylvania. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Education degree and moved to North Carolina soon after to begin my teaching career.
