Summary

Welcome to my online teaching portfolio!  From the moment I stepped foot in a classroom I knew immediately it was the right place for me.  Teaching provides both challenges and rewards that I simply can't get enough of.  A lot of schooling and hard work has prepared me for my career in elementary education and I wanted people to have the chance to see some of the work that I have done.  To the left, please find links to my philosophy of education, references, lessons I have developed that show my ability to plan efficiently and PowerPoints I have created.  I hope you enjoy what you see!
