I taught first grade for three years, fourth grade for one year, and now I am in third grade. And I LOVE IT!
I am a very hands-on teacher. I love to use technology in the classroom and let the students explore together to learn.
I received all distinguished marks on my student teaching evaluation.
I received my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and my Master's in Educational Psychology from Ball State University.
I have been with my husband since my Sophmore year of high school. I have 5 adopted children and they have been the biggest blessing of my life. I love my family so much and couldn't imagine my life without them. I love teaching. It is my passion. I think it is one of the most rewarding careers. I love waking up everyday and seeing their smiling faces. I also really enjoy coaching. It is very refreshing to coach at the middle school and high school. I get to see new faces and the older students are a lot of fun to be around...I am just glad that I don't have to try and teach them :)
