I am in my 3rd year of teaching, and I love it! I am currently teaching kindergarten, and previously taught first grade for 2 years. I have published one article and have been chosen to help write curriculum for Language Arts in my district.
In my classroom, I do as much as I can to have the students working together. Especially in math, I feel that real learning occurs when students are talking about their thinking.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 from the University of North Texas.
I graduated from the University of North Texas with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies, EC-4.
I am a teacher, wife, friend, sister, singer, and above all... a Christian. I try hard to let my faith guide what I do. My favorite thing to teach is writing workshop. I just love to see how creative they can be, and I love to watch them grow throughout the year.
