I'm starting my 17th year of teaching. I taught kindergarten for ten years and the past 7 have been in first grade.
First graders are full of excitement and wonder, so I try to draw off that enthusiasm in my classroom. The best is when learning is so fun, they don't even realize they're learning!

Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Master's degree in Literacy and Language
When I'm not in the classroom I love to read, hike, go camping, and ski. I have a wonderful husband who was my high school sweetheart and a pup named Hailey. ___________________________________________________________________________ Thank you to Paula Kim, Creative Clips, and Whimsy Clips for the clipart used in my logo and banners.
