I have been an elementary school teacher in Colorado for over 20 years. My experience is mostly in fourth grade literacy for English language learners and students of poverty. I've also taught 3rd and 5th grades and spent five years as a K-5 literacy teacher leader.
Balanced literacy approach and we have started infusing mindfulness into our school day.

Mom of 2 boys, 4 and 6, who someday soon can be guinea pigs for my projects! I have an annoying cat who blocks the t.v. while I am trying to watch my shows (which currently is Shark Tank).
