I have been teaching since 1992. During my first five years of teaching I taught grades 1 - 3. In 1997 I changed school districts, and I have taught 3rd grade since that time. I am currently the Third Grade Math Mentor for my school district.
I teach using whole class instruction with a mixture of small group, student lead group work throughout the lessons. I also schedule time that students are working at centers or independent work so that I can work with groups of students who need specific guidance.

I love to spend time with my family. My husband and I are avid deer and quail hunters and we spend most of the weekends in the fall up in the mountains. During the off season I schedule "Super Mimi" weekend parties with our 8 grandchildren.
