My dream was always to be a teacher and I get to live that dream every day! With over 15 years experience in the classroom, I have personally taught 2nd and 3rd grade, and I also create resources for my husband's 1st grade classroom as well. I also have experience working with students of all ages as a tutor. I love my job and reaching the HEARTS of students everyday. I also LOVE my newest job of being a mommy to 2 young children. Being in the classroom everyday is a joy, just as being a mom is the greatest gift I could ever have asked for.
I want all students to find a true love and passion for learning. I work to reach them at their levels and find guided center work and small group instruction key to helping me differentiate my instruction. I try and make every subject engaging and hands on. My particular passions however are in reading, writing and language arts, science, social studies and religion!
