School Daniels Run Elementary
Grade/Subject 3rd grade
How long have you been a teacher? This is my 16th year.
What is your favorite lesson of the year? Our school is beginning to implement Guided Math for our students. It has taken some trials and errors to see what “works” for my students and also fits my style of teaching. I think we are off to a great start and will continue to change as we go. It’s perfect for differentiating and meeting each student exactly where they are in math.
What do you like most about your school? It is much like a family. Everyone is friendly and caring. It is amazing the support you get from the whole staff, professionally and personally.
Why do you like this grade (best thing about this age of students) This is the best age to teach! Eight and nine year olds have learned some independence but still rely on adults for support and approval. They really want to please their teacher. I get pictures and notes almost every day telling me I am the best teacher in the whole world. How can you top that!

If you could be another profession, what would it be? Teaching is it!
Favorite place to travel? I used to be a flight attendant many years ago and have seen many countries so I guess I’d say I love going back home to Indiana to visit my family.
Favorite thing to do on weekends? Grade papers….just kidding! Play with my two grandchildren and go out to dinner with my husband. I also love movies.
