I graduated in December of 2014 with my bachelor's degree in elementary and middle level education from the University of Northern Iowa. Although I am a new teacher, I am full of new ideas and add new energy to the teaching profession. I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade my first 1/2 year of teaching, and now I teach 1st grade! :)
I believe using hands-on activities is the best way to reach every student. Plus, it makes learning and teaching so much more fun! With saying this, I specialize in making hands-on games and activities for math.
My teaching career has been made of many "shining teaching moments." Nothing will ever come close to the feeling when my students finally understand something because of a new technique I implemented with them or a new activity I created that helped them have their "A-HA" moment. These moments help me love the teaching profession and keep me driven to be the best possible teacher I can be.
