I'm entering my 6th year of elementary school teaching. I have taught both 1st and 2nd grades. I am currently a "looping" 1st-to-2nd grade teacher at a Catholic school in Michigan.
I have a Bachelors Degree from Grand Valley State University. I have a Major in Integrated Science, a Minor in Elementary Education, and I am currently working towards obtaining the Early Childhood/Special Education Endorsement (ZS).
I have been trained in DIBELS Next assessments, FAME (Formative Assessments for Michigan Educators), and Cognitive Coaching.
