About Me

I have been a teacher for 16 years and am currently teaching 3rd grade. I have taught grades 2, 3, 4, and 5. Before teaching, I was a para-educator in grades 1, 2, and 4. I have tutored students in grades 3-11. I have also coached girls soccer, grades 7 and 8. 

I follow the philosophies of Responsive Classroom. I also believe in using inquiry activities, whenever possible, because they are engaging and meaningful for students. I have spent a great deal of time learning about differentiation, and I try to incorporate Multiple Intelligences activities whenever possible.


I became a teacher-author in 2012, when I discovered Teachers Pay Teachers.  I realized I could make and sell lesson plans and truly enrich my own classroom with products from other teachers all over the world!

Becoming a teacher has been the most challenging, fulfilling, and inspiring work of my life.  Here I am, sitting with two amazing colleagues.  We are smiling as we lovingly watch our little third graders perform in their holiday concert.

Here I am with my first TPT check in 2012!

 Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me!  I hope I can provide a connection, inspiration, or support for you, in your educational journey!
