This is my 8th year teaching. For the past 7 years I have been teaching in the elementary classroom (multiple different grade levels - mostly primary). This year I have taken a position in my district as an instructional technology specialist. Literacy is still a huge passion of mine, but I see my products/store shifting into a technology driven-mindset. So, if you like engaging (and cute) products, then this is the store for you!
I have used the PBS model, but am currently learning more about WBT. My literacy block incorporates the Daily Five model and the 6+1 writing process.
Yet to be added
I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. I then continued my higher education in Curriculum and Instruction. I received my Masters degree in May of 2011 from the University of Missouri - Columbia. This past December I completed my Ed.S. in Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis - my hope for the future is to become and elementary principal or curriculum coordinator.
In my free time I love to run. This spring I plan to run three half marathons to reach my goal of 10 total before my 30th birthday!
