I am currently in my seventh year of teaching. After graduating from Eastern Michigan University I completed one year of subbing in two first grade long-term subbing placements. After my year of subbing, I became a full-time fourth grade teacher and have been at the same school ever since. This year I am the reading teacher for the entire fourth grade!
I a definitely a relationships-type teacher. I strongly believe that in order to be an effective teacher, you not only have to have good teaching strategies and methodology, but you need to also have good relationships with your students. This philosophy has definitely helped me through some difficult times while teaching, and I strongly rely on positive interactions and relationships with my students.
Yet to be added
I completed my undergraduate work at Eastern Michigan University, graduating from their special education program in 2008. I went back to earn my Master's in Learning Disabilities in the spring of 2010. I just graduated with my Master's in December 2014.
I am just getting started here on TPT. While I am excited to put out some of my ideas, please know that I will probably make mistakes. If you ever download any of my products, and you see a glaring error, please let me know so that I am able to fix it! I am excited to become more involved in this great teaching network!
