I am certified to teach elementary K-6 and middle level math and english. I have student taught 5th grade, and have substituted in various grades until my oldest son arrived and changed everything! (In the best way possible!) I have taught afterschool and summer clubs for Science Explorers and Computer Explorers for children from the ages of 5 to 11 years old. Within these, I have taught students in LEGO clubs, how to create their own video games, movie making, doing various hands on science experiments, and teaching science in a fun and interactive way. I currently homeschool my Kindergarten and 2nd grader... which quite honestly might be my most challenging role yet!
I believe in fostering a love for learning by creating lessons and activities that are not only fun and engaging, but educational as well. Children love, and do learn from play!

I'm a homeschooling mama to two wonderful red-headed boys, a wife to an amazing husband, and saved by grace by Jesus Christ! I'm passionate about photography, painting, gardening, enjoy reading historical fiction, and learning to bake allergy-free goodies for my food allergic kiddos. Life is busy around here. But, as Gretchen Rubin so eloquently puts it, "the days are long, but the years are short!"
