I have been teaching elementary school for 6 years. I spent several great years teaching 3rd grade, and now I am fortunate enough to spend my days as a fourth grade teacher!
I am very much a collaborative learning teacher. I like using discussion, interactive notebooks, task cards, and other engaging activities to keep students engaged and successful.
C.A.P.E. Teacher of the Year Nominee
I attended the University of Iowa, where I received my bachelors in Elementary Education.
I love to run, and I love to teach, so the more I can blend those two together, the better my days can be!
