This is my 6th year teaching first grade and I love it!
I believe in teaching through exciting and fun hands on experiences. I believe in teaching students responsibilty and confidence. I have been practicing the IB and PYP styles of teaching in my classroom.
I have been named teacher of the month every year since I started teaching!
I attended the University of Michigan. I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I am certfied in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Math, and Language Arts. I just completed my Masters Degree in Educational Technology.
I am happily married to an amazing and supporting husband who understands the demands of being a teacher. I have a Cairn Terrier named Dudley who looks exactly like Toto. I am obsessed with Disney and all things Walt Disney World. I also am a travel agent who plans Disney vacations- firstname.lastname@example.org.
