I have been a classroom teacher since 2001. Most of my career has been in 2nd or 3rd grade, but I have also taught 4th & 5th grades. When I'm not in the classroom, I love watching my own children learn through new experiences.
I teach a structured balance of learning styles and use small groups to reach the needs of my students throughout the school day. I enjoy incorporating games to build excitement, maintain student engagement, and deepen understanding.
