I taught 7th grade Language Arts for a year and 3rd grade for five years. Currently I teach all subjects including Math, English Language Arts (Reading & Writing), Science, and Social Studies.
I like to use a lot of cooperative learning strategies in my classroom. I also like to incorporate technology into reading, writing and math. Students should be actively engaged in everything they are learning!
I have been recognized as Employee of the Month at my school as well as the district honor of Excellence in Education. My students have scored above the district and state average on AzMERIT the last two years.
I attended the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater for my undergrad and am currently pursuing my master in Educational Leadership at Northern Arizona University.
I am originally from Wisconsin, but absolutely love the Arizona heat! I enjoy reading, riding my bike, doing any outdoor activity, and spending time with my fiance. I am also always looking for new and innovative ways to engage my students in higher level thinking and learning!
