I have been a teacher for 12+ years and have always taught the sixth grade. Prior to teaching I worked in the health insurance industry as a Marketing Representative. I love integrating technology into the curriculum as much as possible. My blog: yoursmarticles focuses on strategies for technology integration. Through conferences, seminars and training sessions I share my experience with other teachers as much as possible!
Unquestionably my teaching style is student-centered. Student inquiry and project based activities are my strengths coupled with technology integration.
