I am a 3rd grade literacy and social studies teacher at a charter school near Denver, CO. I am also the school PBIS coordinator meaning I work to build character school wide. This is my 8th year teaching. Outside of school I am a wife and mother to two year old twins. I love to read, blog and craft.
