This is my fifth year of teaching. My first year of teaching was in third grade and I have now been teaching fourth grade for four years now. I am also the ESL Coordinator so I work with ESL students and I have my Educational Technology Endorsement which helps me to integrate technology in my classroom. I am also the PR Liaison for my school which helps me to always look for the positives in the school atmosphere.
I try to keep my classroom very student centered. I want my students to be in charge of their own learning! When they can create and discover for themselves the learning has so much more meaning.
I went to Westminster College in Utah and majored in Elementary Education (K-6) with a minor in Teaching English as a Second Language. An additional endorsement in Teaching with Technology.
I love to travel and read and I love teaching. I have an energetic puppy and a feisty kitten who keep me very busy! I am happily married and looking forward to our future together!
