I have my certification in elementary education as well as special education with a masters degree in reading.This is my 11th year teaching with my first 2 years in 4th grade and the remaining 7 years in 5th grade.
Teaching is not only my profession, but it is my hobby and my passion. I am always reflecting and looking for ways to improve on my teaching and the students' learning. I am not sure how to define my style of teaching. I am a mixture of a lot of models. I am extremely structured, but allow the students to learn and experience their own learning with the help of my guidance. Reading and Writing workshops is a huge part of my classroom teaching, and I try to teach students more on an individual or group level instead of a lot of whole group teaching. I try my best to tap into what motiviates students because when they are invested more learning takes place.

I enjoy creating many of my templates from scratch and I love curriculum work whether it be pacing, the use of materials, strategies, or anything inbetween.
