I absolutely love working with young children and can't imagine doing anything else. Currently teaching Kindergarten. Previously taught Pre-K.
Learning through play and partnership, small-group work, hands-on activities, multiple daily read-alouds.

I am married and have an awesome 20 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, 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.
