After teaching for 15 years in public education, I would describe myself as an energetic educator who strives to know each student in my class. Over the years, I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 7th grade; as well as served as team leader for Basic Education, Inclusion, and Self-Contained Gifted programs. I am enthusiastic about keeping learning fun, challenging all students, included the gifted student, and creating an environment where students want to be each day. The material I create can be used for all students, as anchor activities, and as differentiated material. This is a "One Stop Shop" for teachers who want to use creative material ready to go, providing rigor and challenge.
