I have been teaching for 10 years. I am currently teaching in a self-contained 4th grade classroom. Prior to fourth grade I have taught OGT prep to High School students, 7th and 8th grade science, 5th grade Language Arts and 6th grade ELA and Math.
I like to teach students to become independent learners. I try very hard to get out of their way and allow them to grapple with complex tasks while at the same time offering just the right amount of support. In addition, I feel very strongly about short feedback cycles. I like to give students opportunities to enter the curriculum at their level and then provide instruction and feedback to move them along the learning progression.

In addition to being a teacher I am a wife of 16 years and a mother of 4 children. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and gardening. I also enjoy boating in the summer, crafting and just about anything else that allows for creativity!
