This is my 8th year of teaching! Wow, time flies when you're having fun! I was named my school's teacher of the year for the 2012-2013 school year. This is my 5th year teaching Kindergarten, and I also taught 1st grade for three years. I love teaching, and if I couldn't do it I think that I would really be lost in this world!!
My goal is to teach my students in a way that I myself was not taught. Being active learners, with as many hands-on activities as possible, helping them to develop higher-order thinking skills, while also preparing them for the reality of taking the mandated assessments.

I absolutely love teaching. I also love to read and to use technology. I am the technology representative at my school, and I love it! I also play the piano, which can be a great stress reliever, and that's about it! Visit my blog at dailyalphabet.blogspot.com!!!
