I have been teaching second grade for 10 years...second graders are THE BEST!! I am a product of this school district having gone to PDS, Sierra Vista Middle, and Buena High School. After high school I went to NAU and graduated in 1999 with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. While there I met my husband and we married in 2000. We now have 3 children; Connor- entering 3rd Grade, Kyleigh-2nd Grade and in my class this year :), and our youngest, Caden who will be 2 in November. I recieved my Master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy in 2008 and my National Board Certification in November of 2009. I am so excited to work with your child!
I went to post today on the ole blog and found that my background was completely gone. Evidently the talented lady who designed the blog layout had to change photo carriers because so many people were using her images and Photobucket was freaking out because of the enormous use of bandwidth. I don't claim to understand what this means, but luckily she provided new links and I was able to restore the layout with only a few clicks of the mouse. So, if you came to the blog over the weekend or today, you probably saw a bunch of craziness going on. All is well now and I will be posting like a mad woman!
