Degrees and Certifications:
I recently moved here from Lakewood, Washington where I taught 4th and 5th grade for 3 years. Prior to that, I taught 3rd grade for 3 years in Killeen, Texas and 4th grade for one year in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I am the mother of 3 children, ages 22, 25, and 28, and a military spouse with 27 years in the service. I have moved 11 times and taught in 4 different states. I graduated from University of Alaska Fairbanks with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and completed a yearlong student teaching program in a 2nd/3rd grade classroom. I enjoy spending time with my family and my hobbies include: baking, walking, reading, crocheting, and collecting cookbooks and shoes. My greatest weaknesses are Amazon, buying shoes, and buying books for my classroom library.
