I have been teaching in the primary grades for 8 years. I have taught a different grade every year. This has really helped me to learn how to be flexible and constantly create new lessons to fit the needs of my students.
I work hard to differentiate my lessons to fit the needs of each student in my classroom. I am always looking for ways to be sure my students are actively engaged in their learning by making my lessons hands-on and real-world oriented.
Yet to be added
I have a B.A. in Child Psychology from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. I also have a B.A. in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Reading from Upper Iowa University. I have just recently received my Masters in Instructional Leadership from Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa.
