TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am about to go into my 7th year of teaching. Ahhh! How time flies! I have taught second grade for five years and I am currently in my second year of teaching third grade. I live in the state of Florida, where I teach at a Title 1 school. I love to create lessons, anchor charts, activities, basically anything and everything for the classroom. =) I truly love what I do and wouldn't dream of doing anything else.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that every child learns differently and some prefer one style of leaning while other children use multiple learning styles as a way to process as well as understand information. I try to address multiple ways for students to learn though the lessons I create.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Well, I hope to one day be honored for my love of teaching but for now I am just honored to be doing what I love.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Florida.
