I have taught 18 years and I am excited to start my 19th year. I have taught a first/second combination and 16 years in second grade. I will begin my second year in the third grade.
I am very outgoing and love to relate what we are learning through personal stories. I like to work in whole groups, small groups and individually in order to provide the students the best learning environment. Hands-on activities are used regularly in my classroom.
I am very honored to have been named my county's Teacher of the Year. I was also named the Teacher of the Week by the local tv station.
I graduated from Meredith College located in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have a BS in Child Development and kindergarten through 6th grade certification.
I love teaching my third graders and cannot imagine ever having another job. Not only do I teach them but they teach me something new each day as well. I love my babies!
