I have been teaching for 19 years. I was a middle school math and science teacher for the first 18 and I just recently made the change to 5th grade. I adore the elementary students and I enjoy having a self-contained classroom where I get to teach all subjects! Check out my blog My Journey to 5th Grade
I believe that a respectful classroom is a learning classroom. I love my students, yet I am very firm with them. We can have fun with boundaries!!
I am awarded each year by the students that leave my classroom more prepared for the world than when they entered!
I recently completed my master's degree in mathematics. It took me 18 years!! I like to say.... better late than never.
I am happily married and I have twin daughters.
