My Students

Welcome back home to Florida! I am so excited to be calling my home state of Florida home again. Following my husband's service in the United States Army, we are now calling St. Augustine home. I will be teaching 4th grade ELA and SS at our elementary school. I am excited to start this upcoming school year and meet all my kiddos in August. I love teaching reading and writing and it's a love that I try to pass on to my students.

“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” – Walt Disney

My Project

Flexible seating, such as Wobble Cushions and balance balls, allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room, such as at different tables, sitting under tables with clipboards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clipboard. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. My 4th grade class enjoys being able to move around the class and work independently or in small groups.
