I have been teaching for 9 years. I spent my first six years of teaching as a third grade teacher in a high-poverty school. I have taught second grade for three years now in a Leader in Me Lighthouse School.
Balanced literacy, balanced mathematics, hands-on learning.
Nominated teacher of the year for the Northeast Missouri chapter of MSTA (2014). Quite an honor!
I have my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I also have my elementary certification. I have a Master's Degree in Literacy Instruction. I also recently received certification in Art (K-12).
I have three beautiful children and wonderful husband who supports me through all of my wacky endevours! I enjoy my summers off in my flower gardens...scrapbooking is my special hobby and I have a love of art and history.
