Hello there! I am an upper-elementary teacher from Utah. I absolutely LOVE going to work each day. I enjoy planning lessons, creating resources, and connecting with students.
I want my students to develop grit and a growth mindset. I try to create a safe classroom environment where students are unafraid to take risks. After all, learning is a risky business! I employ a combination of direct instruction and constructivism. I have been known to stand on a table and sing a multiplication song. Whatever works, right?
I earned the Wheatley Leadership Award for my work with an early literacy program.
I earned my bachelors in Elementary Education. I also have a minor in teaching English Language Learners. I continue to learn and develop every day through formal professional development and informal google searches.
In my free time I love hiking, eating good food, drawing, making products for TpT, and Netflix binges. Thanks for visiting my store! :)
