30 years in 1st grade, 2 years in 5th grade
I embrace the philosophy of the Daily 5 in my 1st grade classroom. Having taught 1st grade for 30 years, I am passionate about children's literature, and finding just right books to give each child success! I try to give my children as many hands-on experiences as possible!
I was honored through Mimio (whiteboards) as an outstanding Mimio educator.
I graduated from Ohio State University, and got my master's degree from Ball State University.
I am the mother of three children, and stepmom to five. Between my husband and I, we have 18 grandchildren.
