My dream of becoming a teacher became reality in 2003. I began teaching sixth grade and currently teach fifth grade. I've taught advanced and gifted students for the majority of my career. I also have experience teaching after school programs for children with special needs.
My motto is to begin each week with Marvelous Monday and end with Fabulous Friday! I love engaging my students in project-based learning centers where students have the opportunity to explore resources and collaborate with peers. My classroom is my happy place. My goal on Teachers Pay Teachers is fits every teacher's lifestyle: Make Teaching Easy and Learning Fun!
