I have subbed in grades 5, 6, 7, and 8. I have currently taught 2nd grade for one year and kindergarten for 10years. My current job is working as a Reading Intervention teacher for students in grades 1st & 2nd. I have been in this RTI position for four years now. I also work with our school's after-school tutoring programs for grades 2nd through 4th.
I am a hands-on teacher that likes to incorporate lots of songs and technology to keep the students up and moving.

I am a wife and mother of 3. We live in Tennessee. I work for my hometown school system and devote a lot of my extra time to making activities I can use and share with other teachers. I am currently addicted to Pinterest and blogging. :)
