I am a third grade teacher in Missouri. I have taught third for 8 years and I truly love it. I am a certified eMINTS teacher which has helped me develop my teaching style even more. I strive everyday to meet the needs of my students. I believe that each child is given to us for a reason and it is my job to help them become the best that they can.
I like to incorporate hands-on learning in my classroom. I have seen my students come alive with this style of teaching. I also believe in teamwork among my students. I try to provide plenty of opportunity for them to work with partners or small groups. I think that listening and learning from your peers is essential to learning.
Certified eMINTS teacher
Bachelor's Degree from University of Central Missouri (December 2004)
I live in the same town that I teach which I love because I get to see my students out and about in the community. I am married to a supportive husband named Ed. We have three children, Emilee, Colby, and Ava. The three of them keep us very busy.
