I have been a 1st and 2nd grade teacher in California, Washington and Idaho over the last 17 years. Each state has unique styles and challenges that I have adapted to and learned from, while still putting my personal spin on teaching!
Teaching is a work in progress...always changing and always growing.
The gratitude I receive from my students and their families each year I teach :)
Bachelor of Arts Liberal Studies/Recreation Administration, Masters of Education emphasis in Environmental Education, K-8 teaching credential (California, Washington and Idaho)
When my mind isn't wrapped around how to be a better teacher, I am a wife, mom, cheer coach, gardener, photographer, blogger,scrapbooker, friend, daughter...
