I've taught 1st, 2nd, 4th as an elementary school teacher. Prior to that I gave subbing a try to see if I would love teaching and worked for a year in grades k-8. I've also taught adjudicated youth in a residential treatment center, adult fitness, and was a ropes course facilitator. I'm currently teaching in 2nd grade and loving it.
With thoughtful and deliberate learning materials that are standards and researched-based, I hope that the beauty of a student-centered classroom is something we all can share!

I fluttered around the work fields before I became a teacher. Little did I know it was only preparing me for teaching! Nothing else allows me the creativity with the deep analysis or the reward and challenge without monotony. I currently am nested in 2nd grade.
Robbins Roost is lovingly named after my grandparents' ranch up Ohio Creek Road. Ed and Maggie Robbins worked hard to live the ranch life and this is where I learned the most. Grandma Maggie was an educator at heart; teaching generations of kids about nature, love, the importance of family, and what the most delicious pies in the world taste like!
