TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I bring 20 years of teaching experience to the TPT community. I have been blessed to teach 3rd grade for each of those years. :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

Whatever It Takes!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The most amazing honor I have been awarded is the opportunity to teach my own children.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Education is a continuous process. I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from life experiences, my own three beautiful children, and the countless number of 3rd graders that I have been honored and blessed to teach over the last 20 years.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have three amazing children: Katelyn who is 10. Trevor who is 7, and Zack who is 4. I taught Katelyn when she was a 3rd grade student. It was the most awesome experience of my teaching career. I am so looking forward to teaching my boys when they become 3rd graders in the next couple of years. #TeacherMom
