This is my 8th year teaching in the elementary classroom. I currently teach 1st grade, but have experience in grades 1-3. It's so easy to do what I do because I love teaching so much!
My teaching style can be summed up by my main quote. "I do, you watch. I do, you help. You do, I help. You do, I watch." Lots of modeling and lots of independence while I help guide and support!
-Presenter at I Teach 1st! for SDE in Las Vegas, Nevada -Pleasant Local Schools Teacher of the Year, District 1 in the state of Ohio Teacher of the year, and Top 11 finalist for Ohio Teacher of the Year in 2014
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 2006 and my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2007. I received both degrees from Ole Miss. Hotty Toddy! :) I also have my Reading Endorsement from Ashland University.
I am here to help us all on our journey as teachers. Everything in my store is something I already create for myself. If you ever have specific requests or anything you'd like added, please, please, please let me know! I'm willing to help you in any way I can. :)
