I taught first grade for 3 years, combined 1st/2nd grade reading & literacy program for 2 years, 5th & 6th grade math for 2 years. I am currently a substitute teacher in my children's school district while determining the next step in my career. I dream to open an arts based preschool in my hometown.
Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning. I strive to meet the needs of all my students by using many different approaches. I love hands on learning.
I hold a Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education, a BS in Elemenatary Education and a Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy.
I am a wife, mother, and active volunteer in my community. I am the lead Sunday School teacher in my church, head of my Girl Scout Community and leader to 3 active troops. My family and their activities are my first priority.
