I'm in my fifth year of teaching. I'm currently teaching 3rd grade and LOVING it! I taught 2nd grade for 2 years, and also have two years of experience in special education grades 3-6.
I love doing hands-on activities with my students to keep them engaged and interested in learning. Much of my instruction is done in small groups through workshop models. I set high expectations for all of my students, and love seeing them meet goals that they've set for themselves. I try to incorporate technology into the curriculum every chance I get. We recently started Coding, and the students love it!
Graduated Cum Laude from Heidelberg University. Earned Dr. Rose Moore Award in 2010, given to the most outstanding education student. Member of Kappa Delta Pi- Education Honorary.
I received my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education (PK-3) and Special Education (K-12 Mild/Moderate) from Heidelberg University in 2010. Since then, I have also earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Bowling Green State University. I also have My Reading Endorsement (K-12).
When I'm not working on materials for my classroom I enjoy watching sports (especially THE Ohio State Buckeyes), being outdoors, playing with my dog, and visiting with family.
