I have been teaching for 19 years now. I spent 8 years in Kindergarten, 1 year in first grade, and 10 years in third grade which is what I currently teach. I love teaching 3rd grade. It is a great age. I teach all subjects. My favorite subjects to teach are Reading, Social Studies, and Math.
I try to engage my students through hands on activities, SIOP strategies, collaboration, and humor. If all else fails I will teach the lesson in a British accent to get their attention.

I have been married for 19 years to my wonderful husband Chris. We have 2 daughters Megan who is 15 and Abby who is 12. My daughters love sports and I spend most of my time outside of the classroom on the softball fields or at a volleyball court. We have a cat named Daisy who is 17 years old. I was raised as a "military brat" in the Air Force which my father served in for 26 years. My favorite memories growing up are of our time spent stationed in England while I was in high school.
