I have been an educator for eleven years. My first six years were teaching third grade. For four of the last five years I have taught fifth grade, along with one year spent in administration.
My goal is to engage my students and help them delve into their literature or content in a way that will make them think more deeply. I want my students to not only learn for the moment, but to learn in such a way that will benefit them in their future.
