I have 16 years of teaching experience, most of which has been spent in second grade.
I think of myself as a balanced instructor using a combination of whole group, small group, and individualized instruction. I try to present information in a way that is engaging and then provide students with the support they need to be successful. I am always looking for new ideas and strategies to grow as a teacher and learner.

I am blessed to be a teacher, a mother, and a wife. When I'm not busy playing with my kids at home, I'm working on developing curriculum for my other "kids" at school. TPT has been an amazing resource and timesaver for me, and now I hope that I will be able to give something back by sharing the products I've made.
