TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently a fifth 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!!
