I have been a teacher for 8 years now. I currently teach 8th grade U.S. History, but I have also taught 7th grade Civics and 7th/8th grade Reading.
I love to use activities that are interactive and get the students thinking beyond the textbook. My favorite lessons include my incorporating costumes and props. I like to keep my students guessing and have fun in the classroom.

I teach in Haines City, Florida at Daniel Jenkins Academy with my husband, the school's Art teacher. We met at the school in 2009 and have been married since 2013.
