I currently teach 5th grade in North Carolina. I have also taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade. I have been teaching since 2011.
I teach with a student-centered approach. I love having students work collaboratively on projects, hands-on experiments, research, and more. Every lesson should have an engagement piece that hooks students, leaving them wanting to know more. I cannot imagine doing anything else!
I graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in elementary education in 2011. I am certified to teach K-8.
I am from Scranton, Pennsylvania and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in 2005 to attend the University of Utah. After graduating from the U, I started teaching in Salt Lake City. In June 2016 I will moved to Raleigh, North Carolina and now teach 5th grade. Please visit my blog for more education related ideas and tips! The Learning Effect
