I began teaching at Roopville Elementary in 2013. I have taught in Pre-K, Third Grade, and Fourth Grade. I love teaching math, I like to see the growth that children make as they learn new concepts and realize all the patterns and tricks of mathematics. In Fourth grade, math focuses on all of the tricks and concepts behind why ideas work in mathematics. I enjoy teaching fourth grade, so I can be the teacher that makes the connections between the "new math" and the "old school" way of doing math. I have two children of my own, and I have been married for eleven years.
