I have taught for 6 years, going into my 7th year, and I want to teach for many more to come! Teaching is my calling. I didn't know this until later in life, but once I found it I know it is exactly where I belong! I have taught High School, but have substituted before I became a teacher for all grade levels.
I enjoy teaching from the heart. I have found that when I get involved with my students, they appreciate the subject even more. There are many activities that we do together and a lot of it is hands on learning. They are free to express their thoughts and become curious which helps them continue to learn.
Last year I received the, "when no one is looking" award from my principal. He explained that I always do a wonderful job with my students even when no one is observing my class. It was such a wonderful award to receive!!
I have a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Psychology and a minor in History. I am certified to teach 6-8 any subject and 8-12 Social studies composite.
I am married with three beautiful teenage daughters and two adorable dogs named Bella and Emma. I also enjoy taking pictures and I used a lot of them in my lessons.
