Making Learning FUN for Everyone!
I LOVE teaching! Make LEARNING fun and meaningful! That's my mission! I am a National Board Certified Teacher currently teaching in Seattle, WA (Alki Elementary). I have taught grades 1-5 and am in my 13th year teaching. I use costumes, blacklights, games, themes, songs, and much much more to enhance the LEARNING experience for students in an effort to make education feel authentically meaningful. I incorporate Mastery Learning, Understanding by Design, Data Driven Instruction, Growth Mindset, and Project Based Learning is all incorporated in my lesson planning in an effort to create a happy and successful classroom environment.
