I have loved school for as long as I can remember. I was the kid who was excited to bring home the extra papers from class so I could play school on my days off. I guess it wasn't much surprise to people who knew me that I would become a teacher. I have been teaching full time for 14 years with the district and have taught Title 1 reading, kindergarten, and 1st grade.
My husband Lou and I have been married for 28 years and have 2 boys who are both in high school. My oldest will be graduating this year and I don't think a day goes by that he doesn't remind me. As a family, we love spending time together, travel, baseball, and keeping one another humble.
PL Strategy to share:
My main PL focus has been on student ownership and reflection. I feel like students push themselves harder when they are in control and "owning" what they do. I would like to work more on the reflection piece.
