I absolutely love working with children and can't imagine doing anything else. Currently teaching SPED 3-5. Previously taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Second Grade, and completed my internship year in 3rd grade.
Learning through play and partnership, small-group work, hands-on activities, joyful learning.

I am married and have an awesome 23 year-old son. We have lived in Texas, California, Mississippi, Rhode Island, and Arkansas, and have spent time in many other states (my husband is an Air Force Pilot). I taught pre-K for several years (with a bachelor's degree in English and a child development license), went back to school to become a nurse, worked as a nurse for five years (four with pediatrics), stayed home for a few years and assisted at the school my son attended, did some tutoring, and then decided to go back into the classroom and get a masters degree. Crazy? Maybe, but my happy place is in my classroom with my kiddos.
