This is my 12th year of teaching. I've taught 3rd grade reading, 5th grade math, and 9 years of 2nd grade.
I love doing hands on activities with my students, getting those dendrites connecting and making some awesome learning experiences! We try very hard to think outside the box!
The only honor I can think of is that I get the pleasure of working with second graders all day. Doing what I love is honor enough for me :)
I received my Master's degree in curriculum, instruction, and assessment in 2008.
I am married and have two daughters. I also have a furbaby shih-tzu named Lucy.
