I have been teaching the primary grades for 20 years. I am presently teaching first grade and have been teaching first for the last 8 years.
I use a variety of teaching styles in my classroom so that I can try to accommodate all of my student's learning styles. I use hands on activities, reading and math centers, small group instruction, interactive etc. Technology is also utilized in my classroom daily. I use the following pieces of technology: Smartboard, computers, Elmo and IPads.
2010 Teacher of the Year for Nichols Elementary and nominated for RESA Teacher of the Year in 2012.
I graduated with a B.S. in Elem. Ed. K-8 at Marshall University.
I live in a place where we have a population of about 60,000 and is considered a college town . I have 3 wonderful children, a daughter, a son and a bulldog named Izzy. I love being a teacher and I strive to be creative and innovative in my classroom. Furthermore, I also try to keep updated with the never ending changes in education. I am fortunate to be teaching in a small school which I love dearly.
