I have a job that I love! In my 27 years as an educator, I've taught Kinder, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. However, most of my teaching experience has been in first grade. First grade definitely has a special place in my teacher heart!
I love to make learning fun, engaging and hands-on. I provide lots of scaffolding for my students and differentiate whenever possible. My students and I thrive with my well thought out classroom management, routines, structure, and transitions. I am firm but organized, fun and a little wacky (just like my first graders)!
I love writing and I think it shows! I have had the honor of being asked to present Writer's Workshop and Writing training to my peers and to different schools in every school/district where I have worked. I have had the honor of being featured in the TPT newsletter!
Associate in Arts Business Administration, Bachelor’s of Science Business Administration, Bilingual Multiple Subject Clear Credential, and Master of Arts in Elementary Education.
I am married to a wonderful, loving, and very understanding husband!I I have two teenagers that I love more than anything, and two fur babies which I adore. I enjoy to meditating and walking my dogs on my free time. I also love plants! Developing resources on TPT feeds my creative side. It is also my passion. Time just flies when I create!
