What I love most about teaching is being able to impact and make a difference in my student’s lives each and every day! There is nothing more rewarding than the look in my student’s eyes when it finally clicks!
I earned my bachelors degree from UW-Whitewater with a certification in PreK-6th grade. I also earned my masters degree in teaching and learning at Carroll College University in December of 2008.
I have been married for 9 years to my husband Mike, and have two wonderful children who keep me very busy. Mya is 6 and Nolan is 4. I love being a mom!
In my first grade classroom, I feel that it is important to enhance learning opportunities by providing an environment where students’ love for life and learning are encouraged. It is important to do so by providing a safe, nurturing, positive learning environment where children feel a sense of belonging and community. It is my strong believe that if students are provided with many hands on learning opportunities through exploration, observation, and experimentation, learning with be fun and exciting for all students.
