I am beginning my second year as a "real" classroom teacher! I spent 2 looong years filling in maternity/medical leaves. Last year (2012-2013), I taught 5th grade at a Title I school. This coming year (2013-2014), I am gearing up to teach 4th grade at the same school!
I have a very laid-back teaching style, offering plenty of hands-on and discovery learning for my students. I am strict on discipline and have high expectations for ALL. We have fun, but I make them work for it :)
Yet to be added
May 2010- Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Alabama; July 2013- Master's Degree in Collaborative Education (K-6) from the University of North Alabama
I decided when I was 5 years old that I wanted to teach one day. One day is here!! It's tough, trying, exhilarating, and not at all what I expected. I am meant to make a difference and that is just what I am doing! In high school I had this best friend. The summer after my senior year, we decided to start dating. Six years later, in 2011, we got married! Cliche, but true-I married my best friend! We have 2 cats, 2 dogs, and a 2 guinea pigs (who live in my classroom)!
