Sixth year kindergarten teacher! I teach in my hometown and for the district that I grew up in from K-12.
I run a tight, but fun ship! GoNoodle and wiggle breaks between every lesson. I absolutely love reading. My favorite time of the day is doing literacy and math small groups.
2013 Golden Apple Nominee.
I attended Joplin Schools from K-12. I stayed at home and went to MSSU for Elementary/Early Childhood. I traveled on 3 international trips with the education department during college and one as an alumni. I student taught in K and 2nd grade. 1 month of student teaching I went to Belize and taught in a kindergarten equivalent. I graduated in December 2011 from MSSU. Now I'm still an Eagle, but as a kindergarten teacher! I graduated in 2017 with my Master's in Reading- Reading Specialist.
I am in my late 20s and live in Joplin, MO with my husband and two cats. I love teaching, reading, sports, watching movies, traveling (I've been to 11 countries since 2010), and spending time with friends. I am a huge Green Bay Packers fan! GO PACK GO!
