I currently teach 4th grade, but I've taught 1st and 2nd grades as well.
I also have experience teaching adults as I spent several years as a corporate trainer.
I want children to ask questions and discover new information so that it is important and meaningful to them. In my opinion, collaboration and cooperation are the key to success.
Every time a student tells me they LOVE the topic I'm teaching, I consider it the highest award I can be given.

Dissertation: Translating Teacher’s Manuals into Digital Presentations: PowerPoint Presentations as Educative Curriculum Materials

I LOVE creating presentations and resources that help lessons flow smoothly. When I design new resources, my primary objective is to help teachers with lesson planning, preparation and pacing, so they have time left to build relationships with their students. I was so inspired by the response I received from buyers on TpT regarding the PowerPoint presentations I created, that I wrote my entire dissertation about teachers' experiences using the PowerPoint presentations as educative curriculum materials. These types of materials allow teachers to learn as they are teaching the students. Teachers across the country participated in my study and the results were consistent - the teachers reported that the presentations saved them time in lesson planning and preparation, kept them on track during lesson delivery and allowed them to present the curriculum with fidelity.
