I have 20+ years of teaching experience. I taught 7 years in 2nd grade, 8 years in 5th grade and am starting my 5th year in first grade. I also have been teaching education classes at our local Community College for the last 12 years.
I am a creative, out of the box type of teacher. I have ADHD and so I truly understand the viewpoint of those children who can not sit still and need to be moving. I enjoy taking "normal" lessons and activities and making them "extraordinary".

I have multiple degrees: BS in elementary educations, MA in elementary education, MA in administration and am Nationally Board Certified.
My hobbies are definitely a little different -- I am fortunate enough to be a member of a family dirt bike racing team. My husband, son (16), daughter (15) and myself all travel up and down the East Coast and race in several Dirt Bike Hare Scramble series. I am also super active in my gym and have my Crossfit and Crossfit Kids Certification.
