I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education Grades 1-6, a Masters in Technology Applications in Education, and I'm currently a doctoral student pursuing my PhD in Curriculum and Instruction. I'm also an adjunct professor at a university where I instruct a class to help teachers learn ways to incorporate technology into Reading instruction.

My teaching style incorporates a lot of creativity with an integration of technology whenever possible. Many of the activities I engage my students in are created by me. I love to find new ways to engage my students in instruction in order to increase their overall motivation and achievement.
