Hello! I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself to the Olde Sawmill Community. I started my teaching career in 1999 with Hilliard City Schools and taught grades 3 – 5 during my tenure there. I moved to Dublin City Schools in 2008 and began as a Technology Support Teacher supporting Bailey Elementary, Chapman Elementary, Deer Run Elementary, and Glacier Ridge Elementary over my four years. The next two years I spent here at Olde Sawmill as the Math Interventionist for grades 4-5. I taught 1st grade for three years before starting in 2nd grade this year.
I have a system of positive reinforcement in my classroom instead of the tried and true clip chart. I feel that focusing on the positive helps students learn that hard work really does pay off, even in first grade! My classroom also supports flexible thinking, flexible learning, and the 6 Habits of Thinkers.
