I have been a teacher for 7 years. My main experience is in the 3rd grade, but I have a small amount of experience with varying grade levels doing reading intervention.
I believe in teaching the whole child. To me this means making sure my students are learning in a way that works best for them in all subjects/skill areas. There is no one way to teach/learn, so group of students need varying strategies to help them all grasp a topic. I use a Love and Logic approach with my discipline and believe that forming strong relationships with my students plays a vital role in the education process.
I have a BA in Elementary Education from Boise State University with an emphasis in Reading. I also have my Masters in Reading and Literacy through Benedictine University.
I am married to a wonderful man and we have 2 BEAUTIFUL children together.
