8 years of professional teaching experience. Two years teaching 1st grade, 5 years teaching 5th, and currently teaching 7th grade World Studies. I have led professional development on content area literacy, arts integration, and the use of technology within the classroom. I brought a broadcasting studio to the elementary school and worked with 5th graders as they created and produced their own news show.
I incorporate: Simulations, project-based learning, inquiry projects, game based learning, arts integration, technology, and creative design.

I love teaching history! Seventh graders are incredible! When I am not teaching I spend time with my husband and daughter, Lucy!
