I'm a 5th year second grade teacher. Before becoming fully certified, I was a substitute teacher for 2 years.
My teaching style can best be described as firm but fun. Consistent routines should be in place in any classroom, but there also has to be room for laughter and fun! We don't sit in a desk all day in my classroom. I am a strong advocate for movement in the classroom. I encourage my students to pick their learning spaces in the classroom. Students are free to work and sit anywhere that is comfortable for them as long as they aren't a distraction to others.
2012-2013 Regular Educator of the Year award
I attended Texas Woman's University in Denton,Texas. I graduated in 2009 with my Elementary Education degree.
I'm a native Texan who loves all things pink, travel, fitness, and sweet tea! When I'm not teaching you just might catch a glimpse of me in Target or watching reality shows on Bravo.
