I have previously taught Preschool, Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, and Fourth Grade. I am excited for my 11th year of teaching and tackling Fourth Grade again! I currently work at a school implementing the Common Core State Standards and a standards based report card.
The primary teacher in me is always looking for cute ways to make intermediate work more engaging for my students. I believe that if an activity is neatly organized and presentable, then the students are more likely to actively engage themselves in the assignment and stay focused. This produces a fun and learning environment and this is the goal of my everyday classroom!
I am proud to announce that I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Middle Childhood Generalist!
I went to Penn State University where I graduated with two degrees in Elementary Education and Communications and Media Studies. Last year, I completed my Masters degree in Urban Leadership at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).
I love to travel! I have been so privileged to travel to over 20 countries with students through a program called People to People. I loved every minute it. The world is an amazing place, especially when you get to see it through the eyes of children. :)
