TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am getting ready to launch my 15th year in the classroom. I have worked with all ages of elementary students during my career. I spent 7 years working with gifted students. Currently, I teach second grade at a private Christian school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style attempts to address the different styles of learning and at the same time make it fun. In a classroom where we do lots of projects, I like to give students choices that will allow them to shine.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year 2009

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. from the Ohio State University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

After graduating from Ohio State, I packed up and moved to Florida to take my first teaching job. Within 3 years I was teaching in a gifted and talented program. That was a terrific experience. However, the funding and the constantly changing program format sent me back to general education. I now live in North Carolina and teach second grade at a private Christian school. When I am not teaching, I spend my time with my family and my French bulldog - Harley.
