I have been teaching since 2001. I began my career in special education and made the transition to the regular classroom in 2009. I have not regretted that decision for a second. I LOVE teaching first grade and I can't imagine doing anything else.
I like to provide my students with hands-on opportunities to help them learn. I love to integrate technology as much as possible. I believe ALL students can learn and my heart is definitely with the struggling learners. I differentiate for my sweeties as much as I can.

I love my life with my husband, son, daughter, and our little dog. We've been through some VERY challenging times which has only made our story together all the more inspiring and it has only helped our love to grow. My life brings me happiness and pure joy EVERY day!
