TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After teaching 1st, 5th and 6th grade, I now am a principal at an Elementary School and leading my district in curriculum.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I considered myself as an outside of the box kind of teacher. I removed my desks from my classroom (including my own) and replaced them with tables and exercise balls. I worked with higher level material and set high expectations for my students that many thought were unachievable. I learned that if you don't accept excuses, and love students through their struggles, they will succeed.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Science, Indiana University Southeast, Master of Science, Oakland City University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have always held my students to high expectations; however, with the new bar set by Common Core Standards, and the New Indiana Academic Standards for my state, I am seeing an increasing need for rigorous practice in the classroom. The products I sell on my site are created to help teachers prepare their students for success on more rigorous standards and standardized assessments.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
