TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The 2015-2016 school year will mark my fourth year in a first grade classroom. Before that, I taught in my school's computer lab as a specials teacher. I never thought it would happen, but I am absolutely in love with first grade!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Our classroom is only silent when it's empty! Students work together and learn from one another constantly. We're rarely sitting at our desks, as we like to move around and work all over the classroom.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my Bachelors in elementary education from Purdue University. I also have a reading specialist endorsement from Purdue. In May 2012, I completed my Masters in educational technology and curriculum development from Ball State University.
