I have been teaching for 17 years. I have taught grades K and 1. I am currently doing interventions for our at risk students in grades K-2. I also love teaching using the Descartes and the PGID from NWEA. I believe that it is researched based and provides teachers with instant feedback on what skills their students need to gain mastery.
Love to work with small groups and hands on activities. I love to create personalize activities for lessons using MAP data and other data that has been collected by teachers to create learning stations or centers.

Goal: One day retire and work from home full time while looking out over a lake or an ocean. At this time I am happy to say we have the lake view! Finally got the property! Now to build the log cabin. Would love to just work and create from home. Spend time with children and grandson. Enjoy being outside most of all in the sun.
