I am currently in my 9th year of teaching. I taught a Pre-K program for three years and moved to Kindergarten where I have been ever since. I really enjoy it and get to teach with my mom and sister-in-law every day!
My teaching style is very laid back. I want structure, but I want the children to enjoy school. I am always working to incorporate play, sensory and different seating arrangements to help with student learning.
I graduated from high school in 2005 and attended Indiana State University for my Bachelor's Degree. I graduated in May 2009 and got my first teaching job in fall 2009 at the school I went to for my whole elementary and high school career!
I am a mother of 2 sweet boys. I am married to my high school sweetheart and laugh with him every day. I am fortunate enough to work side by side with my mom, as we are each Kindergarten teachers, my sister-in-law has the Pre-K class, and my brother also works at the school I teach at. :)
