I have been teaching first grade for 7 years. I enjoy every second of it and with the ever-changing curriculum, I am always on my toes! I enjoy collaborating with my fellow teachers and sharing our fabulous ways of thinking! I am certified to teach K-8 Elementary Education, 6-8 LA, 6-8 FA and K-12 Special Education with an endorsement in Autism.
I like to think "outside" of the box. I'd like to think I handle all the different behaviors pretty well and it is my area that I am most fond of. I like to be real with the students and I don't "sugarcoat" things. We work together as a team in our classroom and I teach my students to be excepting of everyone, no matter what our differences.
Nominated for Teacher of the Year in 2012/2013.
Yet to be added
I am also the mother of three amazing boys. Ages 17, 7, and 2! It is quite a challenge to juggle the differences in ages, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I may not be the "creator" I always wanted to be... but when I do find some spare time, I like to make my own items that can be useful to others in the field. :-)
