A Little About Me

I grew up in Missouri and obtained my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education at Avila University. I have been teaching either Kindergarten or TK for the past 10 years. I love teaching young kids. They always keep my days interesting and learn and grow so much in the short year I spend with them. 
While math was always easy for me, reading was my favorite subject in school. Today my favorite subjects are reading and science. Developing a love for reading is so important for school success and my favorite classroom moments are hearing a child read for the first time. While I enjoyed science in school, teaching science really helped me develop a love of experimentation and discovery.
In my classroom we work as a team and celebrate our failures as well as our successes. We discovery that learning can be a messy and tricky endeavor that requires patience, perseverance, and creativity. I strive to make the learning process as engaging, interactive, and fun as I can. I look forward to an exciting busy year!
