My hope for this space is that it will be a place for resources and inspiration that help teachers bring joy and wonder into the elementary classroom. I am a Masters' Candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying the integration of science and literacy, as well as a kindergarten teacher in Madison. 

Read through these pages to see where my passions lie - everything from engaging students in science through quality literature, to bringing curiosity and wonder back to the center of the early childhood classroom, to getting kids outdoors and in touch with nature.
