I will begin my 8th year teaching this year in Phoenix, AZ. I have taught 4th grade and this year I will be teaching the 4th grade ELD class.
I have a very creative teaching style. I do not use text books I create and develop everything for my classroom. Math centers are my specialty. I can successfully administer 8 centers at the same time. Classroom management is a strength of mine as well.
I have been Nominated for teacher of the year several years in a row. I have received awards for excelling test scores.
I graduated from Northern Michigan University in Elementary Education with a major in Social Studies.
I was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (hence the Yooper Girl). I love reading, crafting, being outdoors, being with my family, and of course teaching. I love teaching I love learning and sharing new ideas and I love that I am allowed to be so creative every day at my job.
