I have taught for over twelve years including kindergarten, 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 6th grade. I currently teach 6th grade science, math, and language arts.
I use a variety of teaching methods to actively engage the different learning styles of my students. Interactive notebooks, an interactive whiteboard, labs and hands-on experiments, reading from texts and note taking, demonstrations, and Google classroom are some of the things I do in with my students. Whenever possible, I differentiate my lessons to meet the needs of my students.

I have an bachelor's degree in childhood education with a second major in natural science. My master's degree is in elementary education. I have continued to take courses over the years to improve my teaching and get new ideas. I recently took a graduate level course about integrating STEM.
When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with my family, which includes my husband and our three children. I also love animals.
