I taught 3 years of special education at the middle and high school levels. (2003-2006) I spent a year subbing after that then moved into a school where I was bounced between grades 3,4 and 5 for 10 years. Then I moved up to middle school language arts, (which is my FAVORITE) fora year. I recently relocated to OK where I am back in the elementary level again teaching 5th grade in a Title 1 school.
I am fairly laid back and love to be spontaneous. I am creative and like to have fun but have extremely high expectations of both myself and my students. I am weak in the area of organization, so most of my submissions will be items I have created out of my own needs/ desires.
Honored to be a teacher; awarded with their love and smiles everyday.
