I have been teaching primary students for the past 20 years. I have been teaching second grade since 1997. Prior to that time - I was teaching first grade.
I love integrating trade books into my curriculum and prefer utilizing curriculum units that can touch across many areas of the curriculum. I want the children in my classroom to be engaged and to be excited about literature. Hands-on activities are often the focus of math and science in our classroom.

I live near Pittsburgh, PA with my husband, Jim, my 16 year old daughter, Mary and my best four-legged friend, Sandman.
