First grade stole my heart 11 years ago. I have my Masters degree in teaching and have also earned my National Board Certification. When I'm not teaching first grade, I'm busy teaching preschool Sunday School at church and working with my own preschooler at home!
Fun, engaging, and with the BRAIN in mind! I like lots of partner and group work and I steer clear of anything that looks like an independent worksheet!
In 2011, I became a National Board Certified Teacher. In 2014, I was chosen as teacher of the year for my school.
I graduated in 2006 from the University of Arkansas with my Masters of Arts in Teaching.
