  • Teaching Experience

    I currently teach third and fourth grade gifted kiddos, and I enjoy every second of it! Over the past eleven years, I have absolutely fallen in LOVE with my job! I am extremely passionate about teaching and creating, and I enjoy being able to share that passion with others!

  • My Teaching Style

    I believe that teaching stretches far beyond the content areas. First and foremost, I work on establishing strong relationships with my students based on trust, mutual respect, and empathy. I realize that I am educating little people and that even little people have problems that occasionally distract them from learning. I embrace this and strive to meet their emotional and academic needs while at school. Sometimes we all need a pat on the back or a supportive smile to get us through the day. My instruction is interactive, hands-on, authentic, and tailored to meet each student's needs as much as possible.

  • My Own Educational History

    I have a Masters in Literacy Curriculum and Instruction, a reading endorsement, and a gifted endorsement. I also work as an adjunct professor at a local university, and I love it! *Ultimate Goal: I would like to obtain my doctorate and perhaps work as a professor or literacy coach.
