I am currently an Elementary Instructional Coach in a k-5 school. I have experience in both k-5 and k-8 settings teaching and coaching. I have been blessed to have a variety of opportunities in grades k-8: 5th grade teacher, 7/8 Social Studies; Media Specialist, and Technology Mentor. Each position, and each school setting, have helped me to grow as a teacher and develop a new set of skills. I love working with students and teachers, and I can't think of any other job I would ever want to do.
Hands-on inquiry. I love watching kids solve problems and working through to the end. At times, it is difficult to watch them struggle, but when the seed of a solution begins to form, their enthusiasm is contagious!
