BioI am an energetic teacher of 24 years in the 1-5 grade arena. I am quick to develop relationships with students and adults in the school community. I enjoy developing lessons for the diverse learners in my room, which are based on student need, best practices, data, and student interest. I am both a leader in my school as well as within the district and I involve myself in many professional development opportunities during the school year. I am currently working with a team of administrators and teachers to develop, document, and distribute math curriculum and assessments that reflect goals of high achievement and quality instruction to benefit all students.
