I have taught for 25 years. I have taught kindergarten, first, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. My favorite is kindergarten.
I like to teach with literature and hands-on learning. I have never been very good at "script" teaching where I am told what to say. I like for the children to have fun while they are learning.
I received my National Board Certification. This was one of the hardest things I have ever done.
I have my Bachelor's in Education, my Master's in Counseling, supervision certification, and my Reading Specialist degree.
I am married to a wonderful and supportive husband who allows me to dream. We met while cycling and enjoy vacations that involve our bikes.
