I have been teaching first grade for the past thirteen years.  I have also taught 7th and 8th grade and preschool.  I have been a teacher assistant in special education, too!

I enjoy reading, baking, exercising, and being with my family.  I am also learning to golf and sometimes I even enjoy that too.
