I am in my second year of teaching. I have taught both of my years in 4th grade, one self contained and one as the departmentalized writing teacher. I love ALL subject areas, but writing is my passion. I also sponsor a Destination Imagination team at my school, am my grade level's team lead, sponsor a Battle of the Books Team, and lead the Writing Club.
My teaching style is a mixture of fun, new techniques and classic tried and true strategies. Sometimes my classroom is serious and quiet, and sometimes it is fun, loud, and rambunctious. I believe that learning happens when those two environments coexist and come together. Learning should be serious fun!
