I have been in the education field for seventeen years. I am currently the sixth Language Arts teacher in an elementary school. I have also been a digital educator and professional development coordinator.
I love challenged based learning projects where the students do lots of thinking, research, collaborating and then have to sort through their findings and present an answer to an essential question that goes with that topic. I educate through entertaining and I learn while laughing. I'm lucky to do what I do.
