I taught preschool for over 3 years. I enjoyed getting to know young children and helping them find a love for learning. I taught third grade for a maternity leave which led to me discovering how much I loved third graders. Over the summers I tutor students in 1st through 3rd grade as well as sometimes teaching summer school to third graders. I was a reading tutor in first and second grade for one year. This helped me develop ideas and activities for children to help them have fun and become more engaged in reading and writing. The 2016-2017 school year was my first year teaching third grade full time. I love teaching third grade and I'm so happy to be back with this age group. I'm constantly reading and researching new ways to help my students.
I utilize the Whole Brain Teaching method with my students. I am always researching ways to help all of my students. I use fun and engaging resources to help students at all levels. Integrating technology and creating differentiated resources are ways I help reach all students needs and try to help my students become ready to succeed outside of the classroom as well.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Kent State University with my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education. In December of the 2016-2017 school year, I was nominated as Teacher of the Month at my school.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Kent State University with my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education. In the spring of 2015, I completed my 4/5 Endorsement through Walsh University. I finished my Reading Endorsement at Heidelberg University in the spring of 2016. I am constantly reading and researching ways to help my students succeed and to help me meet the needs of all students more appropriately. I am currently looking into beginning my Masters in the summer/fall of 2018.
I have an Instagram account where I post photos of my resources in action, pictures of my classroom for inspiration, and I have giveaways for gift cards, products, and supplies!
