Are you looking for the right literature for your kids, tips for tech or some great STEM lessons? That's what I do! When I first started teaching, I was a mess! I had never worked as a teacher assistant and I had been in private school most of my life, which is run a little differently. I had a great Assistant Principal who pulled me aside and gave me great advice. She told me to focus on one subject area at a time. Go to everything I could find: classes, conferences, anything concerning that one subject area. Then when I felt good about it, move on to another subject area. Now, I've learned a lot about every subject area and been all over the nation attending and presenting on different curricular areas.

I am also an National Board Certified Teacher. My certification is in Literacy: Reading-Language Arts. I am well versed in using educational technology and STEM and seek to learn more every day through classes, conferences and networking. I have been very fortunate to have attended the TCRWP institute for writing twice. I use the reading and writing workshop model in my class.
I've taught K-5. Lately, I primarily teach upper grades. I usually loop with my kids from fourth to fifth grade and back. It's great for the kids and me!
Are you looking for great close reading units, interactive read aloud lessons, growth mindset, Google lessons or STEM? It's all here! Find them on my store on Teachers Pay Teachers. Take a look when you have a minute.
