I am an elementary school teacher that has been in the classroom since 2001. I began my career in a 4th grade classroom and spent the next 7 years falling in love with the fourth grade curriculum. I then made a big change and became an interventionist for 2nd through 5th grade. After two years, I transitioned to Read 180 for fourth and fifth grade. Finally for the last three years I have taught fifth grade GATE. I am embarking on a new adventure next year. I will be moving to 3rd grade.
Yet to be added
I grew up as a military kid. My father served in the military, so I began school in Dover Delaware, then continued in California, Hawaii, and then finally South Carolina. I managed to find teachers in each of these places that were amazing and inspired me to do better and be better. I ended up going to high school and college in South Carolina (College of Charleston).
I am a happily married mother of three children, three fur-babies, and 4 turtles!
