I have worked with children since I hit double digits unless you count my younger brothers and cousins. If you do, then its been even longer. :) Experience: -babysitting (7 years) -childcare/daycare/preschool (4 years) -summer camp (4 years) -field experience (4 semesters) -student teaching (one semester= 3rd inclusive and 4th/5th spec.ed. -substituting (1 year, with a LTS in 3rd) -personal classroom (2nd=1 year, 3rd=5+ years)
I am willing to adapt as necessary but I remain "Firm, Fair, and Friendly" as my college professor would say. (Dr. Ferraro)
In college, I received the Delta Epsilon Sigma National Student Award in 2011 and in 2012, I received the Kelly Vaughn Teaching Excellence Award.
I received my bachelor of arts degree at Neumann University, Aston, PA for Early Childhood and Elementary Education with a Special Education Certification and a minor in Literature. I received my masters of science degree for Curriculum and Instruction through Western Governors University.
I am a fun, life loving, sport cheering, down-to-earth third grade teacher. I have a wonderful husband and a goofy dog named Cooper. My family is huge but I love them and my friends add in spice. I enjoy spending time outside and being active when I can but I also enjoy snuggling on the couch with a good movie/book.
