I'm a public school teacher with a passion for all things elementary. I love creating and sharing resources that are purposeful and engaging!
I have used the Responsive Classroom approach to building a classroom community in grades Pre-K through 5th. I currently use Readers' and Writers' Workshop, Words Their Way, and Eureka Math. I also have experience with Investigations Math and CGI. I create a lot of my own standards-based lessons, activities, and assessments using the Common Core Standards.
Rated "Highly Effective" on the DC Public Schools IMPACT Performance Assessment
My Bachelors degree is in Psychology from Penn State University and my Masters Degree is in Early Childhood Education from George Mason University.
