I have seven years of teaching experience, and believe-it-or-not all of the grades I have listed are included within that experience. I have taught at public, private, classical, Christian, and charter schools. I have had small class sizes of as-low-as ten students and large class sizes as-high-as thirty-five students. I have experience in both rural and inner city schools. I have worked in diverse settings including full to no inclusion, multi-grades, and multi-cultural. From the bush community of Tok, Alaska to the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, I have worked with a wonderful array of students and teachers.
I use a combination of the responsive classroom and whole language approaches where I connect my standards to my curriculum using units.

My Lord, family, friends, teaching, cooking, and music are my favorite things, and they have to come in that order.
