I have been teaching for 13 years. I am currently teaching kindergarten but have also taught 1st & 2nd. I have taught in private, Montessori, Charter, Indian Reservation & Public schools. Public schools are my favorite hands down!
I am a hands on teacher. The process is more important than the product. I do not like cookie cutter projects where everyone's looks the same. Children should express their personalities through their work. I love technology & love to infuse it when ever I can. Last year I taught my Kindergarten students to code through Code.org & they had a blast!
DETA 1 & 2 trained (Digital Education Teacher's Academy) Written & won 6 grants for my classroom
I am a second career teacher, I have a BA in Marketing & International Business. I hold a masters in Early Childhood education & am certified in PreK-3 Grade, ESE and have endorsements in Gifted and ESOL.
I am a mother of 2 children ages 4 and 7. I love to take pictures, anything dealing with technology and hanging out in the pool with my kids. At school my principal calls me the Techy Kindergarten Teacher.
