This is my 5th year teaching in the Elementary level. I taught 5th grade for 2 years, and 2nd grade now for 3 years. Working with a variety of reading and math programs that just didn't work for my students I realized I needed to do something different. This lead me to obtain my Masters Degree from GCU in Curriculum Instruction and Design. I also have a Gifted and Talented certification along with my K-8 cert.
I want my students to have variety in the classroom. We do a lot of workstations and small group instruction instead of whole group. I also love integrating Science and Social Studies into the curriculum so my students get to have those subjects daily.
