I have over a decade of experience teaching. I have taught in North Carolina and Georgia. I have always custom designed my own artwork, units, lessons, and activities. I also have my own website that sells clipart, drawings and templates for teachers to use for resale!
I believe in fun, student-centered learning that integrates multiple subject areas and has real world meaning. I am loving and understand but very consistent and well-organized.
I have recieved teacher of the year nominations and small local awards from my students turning in my name at the radio station, etc...
I was a military brat so I went to seven different grade schools in several different states. I attended high school in Kokomo, IN. Then I went on to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Eduation with a minor in mathematics. I am currently working on my masters in mathematics.
I wear many hats. I am a wife and mother of 2 little girls. I am an artist with my own business in addition to teaching second grade full time (which I love). I also enjoy scrapbooking and crafts of all sorts. ALL of my friends tell me that I am very creative and well-organized. I can organize anything! I also have a bit of a different sense of humor. I beleive humor is important happiness and making connections with others.
