I have been a second grade teacher since 2003 and 2016 brought me to the year of the fourth grader and I am loving every minute!
I facilitate a student-centered classroom with as much hands-on learning as possible! I also try to incorporate as much technology as I can since we live in a world that is consumed by it!
Working on it :)

I teach in a small school system in North Carolina. Love nature, photography, and technology. During the summer, I can be found relaxing in the sun on the beautiful shores of the Outer Banks. I also find that I have a deep passion for creating units to use in my classroom and also find it helpful to share with my TpT friends. My children will often ask, "Did you make this?" and they always seemed to be more interested in what they are doing when my answer is "yes."
