This is my 8th year teaching. I taught 3rd grade during my first year of teaching, then two years of teaching Drama to elementary grades K-5. This is now my fifth year teaching 5th grade in Atlanta Public Schools.
I like to teach creatively and visually to my students, incorporating as many cross-currricular concepts as possible.
None at this time.
I received my Bachelor's in Advertising from Penn State University and went on to earn a Certification/Master's degree in Elementary Ed from Drexel University.
I am originally from NJ and moved to Atlanta after college. I absolutely love it down here, but I do miss the northeast.
