I am currently in my 13th year of teaching! I have taught the following grades: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th. I have also taught a 2/3 and 3/4 combination class. I have worked at 4 different schools in my district (1 school closed, and the other 2 schools had low enrollment, I was low man on the totem pole). Being at the different schools, I have worked with diverse populations. Right now I enjoy being a "dolphin", and feel this is where I was meant to be.
I try to make everything we learn fun. We laugh a lot in my class, yet the students know they are held to high expectations. I am a definite believer in making connections to the students' lives.

I also work for the district as a member of our instructional guidance team. I provide professional development, and work on the common core curriculum for my grade level. I am also a certified SMART Notebook trainer, so many of my notebook items will have many interactive features.
