I started my teaching adventure by completing a year long student teaching internship during my senior year of college. After graduating that program, I was hired on at the school I student taught at. Ever since, I've spent years in both 2nd and 3rd grades...and I couldn't be happier! :)
My teaching style involves a lot of FUN! Having fun in the classroom is the easiest and most enjoyable way for my students to learn. I've embraced a workshop framework of teaching for reading, writing, and math. As a class we not only learn through mini-lessons but also through fun and interactive games, technology, and independent practice across content areas!

I grew up in a small, rural community in central Illinois. After graduating high school there, I went on to attend Illinois State University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.
