While I was still in my teacher training, I vowed to teach the full span of my Kinder-9th grade certification and I am well on my way! My teaching career began in a 3's and 4's classroom. I have since taught Kindergarten, 3rd, 7th and 8th grades!
I believe that 21st century literacy skills are used and applied in all content areas and through all learning activities. Though I emphasize literacy, I also utilize inquiry based learning and cooperative learning throughout my day. My students have thrived through the use of learning centers and small-group instruction. The materials I create begin as resources in my own classroom to capture the learning of my students.

I love to read, write and experience the great outdoors! I enjoy creating educational materials almost as much as teaching itself, so do not hesitate to contact me with any requests or needs you may have for your classroom!
