I am in my 23rd year of teaching. During this time I have taught K, 2nd, and 3rd. I am currently teaching 3rd grade and absolutely LOVE what I do!
I believe in making learning FUN and EXCITING! I am always willing to try something new. I am not afraid to sing, dance, or act silly as long as my students are learning along the way. I try to incorporate HANDS ON, CREATIVE, and ENGAGING activities that motivate my students to become lifelong learners.
I earned my National Board Certification in 2006 in the area of Early Childhood/ Generalist. In 2014, I was selected as my school's Teacher of the Year.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. I also earned a Master's Degree in Reading Education.
