I just completed my first year of teaching in a 5/6 split. Teaching two separate grades in one classroom has given me a unique perspective and experience in reaching students at multiple levels and interests at the same time.
I have a passion for reading and want my students to feel the same way. I enjoy planning lessons that allow students to be creative and to interact with the text we are reading. I use discussions and activities to foster deeper connections to the book and encourage collaboration among my students.
I was named Outstanding Future Educator by the Indiana Association of Colleges for Teacher Education in 2014 at the completion of my student teaching.

I have been married for two years with a beautiful dog and no kids (yet). My students are my children. I have lived in Indiana my entire life and have no desire to live anywhere else. I have a love for organizing and a passion for reading.
