About Me

Hello there!

I teach 5th grade in the crazy but wonderful city of Las Vegas, Nevada!!

I was made Department Chair of 5th grade last year and I am currently in my 3rd year of teaching. I taught departmentalized Reading and Writing last year and for the first few months of this school year before we switched back to general ed (that’s a discussion for another day!).

I graduated from THE Ohio State University in December of 2012 with a BA in Middle Childhood Education specializing in ELA and Social Studies. I then started my Masters in Elementary Education 3 weeks later and graduated in May of 2014. And even now I am working on a Post-Masters degree at UNLV (University of Nevada Las Vegas) for an Educational Specialists Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

I love my crazy students and spend so many hours prepping fun and exciting learning adventures for them. I try to keep things simple though, and that is what you will find here.

I have so many ideas, dreams, and goals and can’t wait to share them here. Thanks for joining me on this crazy adventure!
