I started teaching 22 years ago. I have taught as a basic skills teacher, an LRP teacher and one year in kindergarten. This year will be my 19th year teaching first grade! I love it just as much today as the day I started :)
I love teaching and everything that being a teacher embodies. I believe that students need to see things in several different formats. My teaching style is fun, playful, and creative. I love teaching children through games and hands-on activities. It's my job as a teacher to learn how my students learn best, and to target lessons that are best for them. Making learning a fun and enjoyable experience is my number one goal!
2003 Teacher of the Year
I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Psychology, and a master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy.
I live with my husband, daughter and our dog Dusty. My hobbies include making new and exciting activities for my classroom, crafts, and spending time with the people I love.
