Learning is a lifelong journey! I received my masters degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Literacy from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. I am certified to teach K-6 grade. While in college, I worked 4 summers at a children's museum with children from the ages of 4-8. I loved working at the children's museum and being able to use my imagination to teach Summer camps. I am currently a 5th grade teacher in Nebraska.
I feel that it is beneficial for a student to be able to work one-on-one with their teacher in order to ask questions and feel comfortable investigating their learning. My main teaching passions are reading, writing, grammar, and spelling. I also enjoy teaching Elementary math.
In my free time I enjoy reading chapter books. I love to read so much that I just recently finished reading a book called "The One and Only Ivan" by Katherine Applegate! I can't wait to read the sequel! I also enjoy walking my dog named Lucy, attempting new recipes to cook, and traveling to new places.
