I have taught all elementary school grade levels between being a classroom teacher, a media specialist / librarian, as well as tutoring, summer school, and even teaching gymnastics.
I adhere very closely to the Responsive Classroom model and believe strongly in the power of choice. In my classroom, students sit for short periods of time and then dive into independent or small group activities while I jump from group to group for more 1 on 1 instructional time.
I was nominated in my first year to be the recipient of The Golden Apple Award

I know own my own professional organizational business called Here It Is. I specialize in digital organization by helping clients convert physical files to their computers and teach them how to keep them tidy on their devices. I also love working with teachers and helping them to maximize their classroom spaces and jump starting their students' learning!
