I was hired by a district in a Detroit, MI suburb back in 2004 to teach 2nd grade. I have been in the same school there ever since. I have taught various grades from 1st-3rd, including a looping experience from 2nd to 3rd grade, as well as multiple 1st/2nd grade split classes. I love teaching a split as our class sizes are much smaller!
Outside of school, I spend a lot of time with family and friends. I am fortunate in that my dad is a professor at MSU, so I grew up on campus. Still to this day, I spend a lot of time on campus for athletic and cultural events. I am also highly involved with the MSU Alumni Association.
In my spare time I enjoy: traveling, reading, and watching sports. I also have a cat, Britain who keeps me entertained:)
|Sparty and myself when he came for "March is Reading Month" in 2012. Don't know who was more excited:)|
|My cat is in the middle (Britain), along with my parents' dog Ernie, and their cat Catalina. I consider this picture to be rare as they rarely will be peacefully sitting by each other as my cat has an attitude issue...|
