TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught second grade for two years before graduating to fifth grade. This is my third year in fifth grade, and I'm loving every minute of it.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I strive to meet the needs of my diverse learners through a variety of activities. I incorporate many projects and interactive lessons in my daily routines. I also work with small groups and individually with students as much as possible to reach students on their levels.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Clemson University. I was recently nominated as a Teacher Leader by my administrators and have the opportunity to be a part of the Teacher Leader consortium through our state department.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Clemson University in 2010 with a degree in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my Masters in Administration and Supervision through Clemson University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm new to the TPT store concept. I hope that I can help provide some useful activities for some teachers. If I shared even one good idea with someone, then I feel like this has been a success!
