I am a first grade teacher at Risco Elementary! I have taught first for a year and a half and still at it! I have also taught 5th grade for a one year. I am in LOVE with firsties and watching their knowledge grow!
I am a facilitator teacher! I love to find activities to engage students and keep their attention while they learn. I do believe that worksheets are necessary to be sure students understand certain concepts, however I think activities are a great resource and reinforcement for those worksheets to really mean something.
I graduated from Missouri State University in December of 2014 with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. My emphasis is in Math. I am a certified elementary teacher in Missouri. I have also obtained my Masters in Elementary Administration from William Woods University in May of 2017.
I am married to a Math teaching basketball coach! We are both very passionate about what we do and LOVE teaching. Needless to say, our free time mostly revolves around sporting events and lesson plans! We are also new parents as of 2017. Our sweet little boy keeps our hands full and hearts happy.
