I have been teaching elementary grades since 1996. During that time, I have taught grades 4,5, and 6. I love the energy in these grades, the sense of humor, and the childhood wonder that still dominates.
I tend to use a great deal of cooperative and group work. I like conceptual work with a tangible product.

I love all things outside and athletic, and I have always worked in rural educational settings because I need to be near mountains, rivers, forests, and fresh air. My students have diverse economic and social backgrounds, as most rural populations do. I have lived in New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont, so I am grounded in New England.
