This is my 10th year teaching and I have been in 1st, 2nd, and now teach 3rd grade. I've been at a Title 1 school, private charter school, and now a Traditional Academy in the Chandler School District that is modeled after a charter school. I've been using Common Core State Standards since 2010 so have 5 years under my belt in primary grades. CCSS is has changed the way we teach so I want to give teacher practical "take away" lessons that are easy to use. I love creating lessons that kids enjoy and learn from because I love teaching with all my heart!

Worked in the corporate world for 15 years as an HR Generalist and Adult Educator for Safety, Training, etc. Always wanted to teach but went corporate out of college because it paid more. Now I realize money doesn't make the world go round...kids with a thirst to learn do!!
