I am currently teaching first grade in Northern Virginia. This is my twelfth year teaching. I taught third grade for three years and first grade for nine years.
My students have called me crazy, funny, and weird. I will do anything and everything to keep their attention. While I am teaching, I wear hats, masks, wings, make funny voices, have them make pretend, use puppets etc. I see teaching as a one-man show. If your show is boring, people will leave. If your teaching is boring, no one will learn.
I won the honor of being Carter G. Woodson Elementary's 2014 Teacher of the Year.
I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Towson University. I have several STEM master's credits from Salisbury University. I love to bake in the classroom and have been a conference presenter for making bread baking cross-curricular.
The majority of my graphics are my original artwork. This includes borders and graphics on my products. I also have several original fonts included as well. I never stop learning (:
