I am a Third Grade Teacher who also blogs about today’s Changing Classrooms including Free-Choice seating in a Flexible seating classroom that is Student-led and the thoughtful, purposeful integration of technology.  While so many others may have you think otherwise, I believe this is the most exciting and promising time in our nation’s history to be an educator.  I love the opportunity teaching brings to learn with and from our Future World Leaders, as well as from the larger community of leaders in the education field in my School, District, and Professional Learning Network.   Blogging is a chance to reflect on these experiences and to share with others.

I have a B.A. in Psychology from the College of William and Mary and a Masters in Teaching from North Carolina State University.  ​Go Pack!  Recent accomplishments include:  Google Certified Educator Level 1 and Symbaloo Basic Certification.  In addition to 3rd grade, I have taught in First and Fourth.  I have also moved up (looped) to 4th grade with my 3rd graders and have team taught Math and Science.

My husband and I have four boys and a lab-mix rescue named Daisy.  I love sports, especially football and college basketball, and cheering for the Wolfpack and the Steelers. When I’m not teaching and/or learning, I enjoy spending time with my family, biking, and hiking.
