I taught 2nd grade for six years, 3rd grade for two years, junior high for three years and now I am in the wonderful world of middle school and having a blast with environmental and spatial technology!
I believe in a student centered learning environment. Questioning is the basis of a great classroom. Knowing my students strengths and weaknesses is very important to me. I set very high expectations for all students and I don't ever lower them.
