I am a first grade teacher and an amateur baker & event planner! I've been teaching for four years and am ready to start my fifth year at my amazing school! I spent my first two years teaching third grade and took on first grade two years ago and fell in love!
I am all about hands-on, high-engagement, fun, cooperative learning! I use Kagan Cooperative Learning and Brain-Based learning in every lesson every day! I love challenging and motivating my students to do their best.
I teach at a two-time A+ School of Excellence & National Title I Distinguished School.
I graduated from Arizona State University in May of 2011. Go Sun Devils!
Along with my teaching career I love to bake. Cupcakes, pies, cookies, pastries, muffins, you name it, I bake it (and eat it too!). With that being said I took on the name "The Teacher Baker".
