TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently a third year teacher in a small rural school district just outside of Madison, WI. I teach first grade, which I absolutely love. You never know what will happen each day with those little kiddos and that's what makes it exciting and fun!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I always try to make this as interactive and fun as possible for my kiddos!! Keep them moving, organizing, reasoning, explaining, and they are ALWAYS hard workers! We are busy, busy, busy!!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Sometimes, I think there should be an award for surviving your first year of teaching.... :)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelors in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Language Arts from University of Wisconsin- Madison. Go Badgers!
