I have worked in the public school system in Michigan since beginning my career 6 years ago. I taught 5 years of 2nd grade and now teach 1st grade. I work in a district that uses Everyday Math, Lucy Calkins Writing, Daily 5, Battle Creek Science, and Word Study/Word Journeys. We also are a 1-to-1 technology district at the Elementary level and follow the Common Core.
I follow: Gradual Release of Responsibility, the Constructivist Approach, teach with a Growth Mindset, and use a Workshop model for all subject areas.

I am a mother of 2 beautiful children - 1 boy and 1 girl. My husband and I are both teachers, working to improve our craft each day while also raising our babies together. Since my experience is primarily in 2nd and 1st grades, most of my materials are meant to work with these grade levels. With that said, you may find them helpful in other grade levels as well.
