About Me

Fun, Good, Work! : http://youtu.be/rTqDglhzQbw 

 I am a 4th grade teacher!!! Full time...1 fabulous, integrated class!

I am blessed to be a teacher and work with children to support their learning and growth. My interests are many and I love to collaborate! Assessment for Learning (AFL), Literacy, Technology, Creativity, Giftedness, PBIL, Marine and Space Science, conservation, sustainability and more (yes...I am truly an elementary teacher at heart)! I think STEM covers a lot of the above..sorry! 

Groups: Some of my favourite Edmodo Groups I have as part of my PLN. If you can't find them, let me know and I'll get the codes to you. 

*Florida Teachers
*Gifted and Talented - 
*Common Core Conversation (and one for administrators) 
*Project Based Learning (PBIL) here on Edmodo & NASA ePDN with Georgia Tech (google it) - 
*Flipping your classroom: I have been working with this since the 2012-13 school year.
*Assessment for Learning: I LOVE AFL! and have created a group centered on increasing the use of Assessment for Learning in the classroom. 
*Class Dojo: Highly recommend Class Dojo, a technology based behaviour management program! 
*Nooks for Learning: using Nooks and e-readers to engage and support students with literacy life long! 

I am a Florida Certified Teacher 1-6 grade & (US) Qualified Teacher for Primary (England). 
BS in Elementary Ed (US) and Post Grad Diploma in SEN (UK) My Post Grad work was in Literacy Difficulties, Curriculum Design and International Education.
