TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love making teaching activities and units! Often times, I would search and search for the right thing to use with my students but didn't have any luck finding it. So, I started to create my own materials and now I love sharing them with other teachers. This is my 9th year of teaching. Six of these years have been teaching science and language arts. I spent seven years teaching 5th grade (which I loved!) Now, I am the middle school literacy teacher!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very high energy, enthusiastic teacher who tries to incorporate technology and interactive lessons into my plans (and I occasionally dress up like a mad scientist!) I like a lot of hands-on activity and active discussion with my students. I love creating my own materials that are tailored to the standards that I teach.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

George A. Pflaum Award, Nominated for Panera Rising Above Teaching Award, Three-time presenter at OCEA convention I've also received several "World's Best Teacher" ornaments and mugs. :)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's degree in Middle Childhood Education from The University of Dayton Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Ohio Dominican University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have two very spoiled bulldogs named Oliver and Hank. My husband and I enjoy cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes and trying out restaurants in the area (my favorite is Mexican food!). I also love to write and read.
