About Me

I am a fifth grade teacher in my 14th year of teaching. Prior to that, I was an accountant for 17 years. I changed careers because teaching elementary school had always been a dream of mine when I was a child. I believe that students today learn differently than they did ten years ago and they need to be taught in several different modalities. They are much more tech savvy and need opportunities to use these skills. My favorite part of teaching is the awesome feeling I get when students are having fun learning and creating.
