I have taught Elementary school in Florida for 10 years. I have taught first grade, second grade, and am currently teaching a 2/3 combo. I am currently the second grade team leader.
I love interactive lessons. I love to have the students teach each other and learn through experiences. I strive to teach and encourage my students' independence. I dislike the amount of testing required, but I want my students to be ready for future required testing, so I give them relevant testing and strategies to learn how to take tests and study for tests.
Have received many grants for technology and science.
Graduated with my MEd from the University of Florida...Go Gators!
