TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught across Texas and have settled in my wonderful small town. I teach 3rd grade ELA but have experience in 1st, 2nd, and 4th as well!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in making learning fun! If my students aren't engaged and interested, they aren't going to remember what is being taught. I love to incorporate games and stations into my teaching while focusing on mini-lessons throughout.
