TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a 1st grade teacher who loves to create memorable learning moments for students! This will be my 10th year in the classroom--I taught 4th grade for 2 years, and this will be my 8th year in 1st.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Learning should be an adventure! My classroom is very hands-on and interactive. I enjoy integrating my unit theme into all aspects of the curriculum. Creativity and imagination are highly encouraged in my room!
