During my seven years in the classroom, I taught grades 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, all at an elementary level. I've taught in a traditional public school, a charter school with an entrepreneurial focus, and a year-round public school.
I teach with a student-centered approach. I love having students work collaboratively on projects, with hands-on experiments, research, and more. Every lesson should have an engagement piece that hooks students, leaving them wanting more.
Yet to be added
I graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in elementary education in 2011. I am certified to teach K-8.
I believe that the teacher is the fuel that ignites the learning effect within students. With the right resources to inspire and engage your students, they are capable of being motivated, high achievers in the classroom. My goal is to create high-quality, low-prep content and resources for upper elementary teachers.
I am from a small town outside of 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 moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where I currently live today with my husband and our daughter. In 2018, I decided to leave the classroom to focus on my health, which was declining due to severe anxiety and depression. I now work from home on my business full-time with my toddler running circles around me.
