I taught pre-K from 1993-1997 I taught my own little muchkins as a stay-at-home mom from 1993-2006 I am thrilled to say that in 2007 I began my journey as a 1st grade teacher.This is my 10th year!
An eclectic mix of good teaching practices that work well in a Balanced Literacy setting. Hands on math and science lessons taught within the 5E model. I believe Discipline = skills based learning so I am all about teaching behavior as well. Bumping a student up or down on a chart in front of her/his peers tracks behavior but most of the time doesn't change it.
Teacher of the year nominee 2013-2014
B.S.I.S in elementary education
I believe teaching is an extension of motherhood and being a mom is my proudest honor.
