I started out teaching grades 7-12. Then I was the gifted and talented facilitator for grades K-5, and now I teach second grade! It is amazing to come to work every day and help these little ones grow!
I do a lot of hands-on activities with my students to really get them involved and excited about learning. I focus on higher order thinking in my classroom and really push my students to learn something new. I also provide materials to other classroom teachers to aid them in teaching their gifted learners.
I received an award for scoring in the top ten percent of the nation on my PLT Praxis exam.
Yet to be added
I have two children, a preschooler and a fifth grader. They are the absolute light of my life! I have a very loving and supportive husband that I simply couldn't live without. :)
