I am in my fifth year of teaching and am just finding my groove! I currently teach third and fourth grade learners in a charter school designed for gifted learners. I teach third grade level math, and above grade level language arts (anything above third or fourth grade for those students working above their typical grade level). In the past, I have taught fifth grade, second grade, and first grade.
I work hard to incorporate cooperative learning, primarily with Kagan Structures, and to give students the opportunity to choose the manner in which they demonstrate mastery of the concepts we learn through project menus.
I was awarded the 2012 Charter Friend Award for Outstanding Charter School Teacher by the Colorado League of Charter Schools! Very exciting!
I earned my BA in Education and Liberal Arts from Colorado Christian University, and will have my endorsement in English Literature soon. I earned my Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction in 2007 from CCU as well.
