TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! I started my teaching career in Seattle, Washington. My husband and I moved to Dallas, Texas and I began teaching Kindergarten. I fell in LOVE with Kinder. We are now back in our hometown of Seattle and we are loving it! I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In 2012, I stumbled upon "Whole Brain Teaching". I began to watch the online videos and started implementing this style of teaching in my classroom last year. My students loved it!! In June of 2013, I was fortunate enough to attend a Whole Brain Teaching conference.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

2013-2014 George Peabody Elementary Teacher of the Year

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my B.A. in Psychology (with a minor in Philosophy) from the University of Washington. Go Huskies!! I received a MIT degree in Elementary Education from the University of Washington in 2011. I furthered this degree with a Reading endorsement in 2012.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am very passionate about my career and I am SO excited to share my products on TpT!! In addition to teaching, I am a volunteer for the Son Rise Autism Program.
