I am heading into my 5th year teaching and making a big change this year! The past 4 years I have spent in my very first classroom teaching self contained 6th grade. Next year I am heading to a new district as the LRC teacher. My focus will be on technology integration with the content areas for K-5th graders. I can't wait to embark on this new adventure!
I truly believe in preparing my students for their higher education, the working world, and life in general. I think that one of the most valuable things I can teach them is to work cooperatively with others. Cooperative learning is a staple in my classroom.
I have earned my degree from Illinois State University in Elementary Education. My endorsements include reading, language arts, Spanish, social sciences, and science.
My students would describe me as organized, creative, color obsessed, and a teacher who absolutely LOVES to laugh with her students.
