I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grade for 12 years. I host teacher in-services for teacher re-certification credits.
A quiet classroom is a creative killer! I run a high interested caring classroom where students challenge themselves to take academic risks, work collaboratively and become a community of learners committed to succeed. Implementing balanced math and literacy strategies using the CCSS while incorporating Write from the Beginning writing methods and thinking maps across the curriculum.
C.C. Meneley Teacher of the Year 2010.
I attended University of Nevada and earned my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary education. I also have my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction- Technology.
In addition to my teaching job, I also work part time with performance horses in the Sierra Nevada. I love to snowboard, hike, garden, create, and most of all be a mom. Visit my blog at http://teacherjewles.blogspot.com/
