I am a 2nd grade teacher from Georgia with 22 years of teaching experience! I've also taught 1st grade, Title (Reading and Math), Reading Recovery, and SIA for instructional support in Kindergarten. I am a Nationally Board Certified Teacher with my Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I LOVE making teaching and assessment materials!!! I hope you enjoy the items I post here on TPT! It is fun knowing that I can make activities for my own classroom and share them with others!!!
I believe if you engage a student through motivating age-appropriate activities, learning is inevitable. All students can learn and love to succeed. Children have different needs and levels. I feel as educators we need to support and challenge learning through interesting and age-appropriate lessons and materials. Learning should and can be fun!!!

I've always wanted to teach!!! I knew early on that it was what I was meant to do. Watching a child learn how to read is an awesome experience! I loved teaching the reading process to my First Graders for over 15 years. Second Grade has given me more of an appreciation for math and writing. That is what I am currently teaching and enjoy it! Every year is exciting and rewarding in it's own way!!! I truly love my job!!!
