I began teaching in 2004. I have taught third grade reading, math, and language arts for 8 years now. I have a B.S. degree in early childhood education, a M.S. degree in curriculum and instruction, and an educational specialist degree in elementary education. I am gifted certified and have attended many professional development opportunities.
My main goal as a teacher is to ensure that my students enjoy learning and become life long learners as well as readers. I try to make coming to school exciting and fun for students and I do this by teaching students in a variety of different ways to adhere to each type of learner.
I was elected teacher of the year for our elementary school in 2010. I became elementary teacher of the year for our school system and was elected teacher of the year for our system for the 2010-2011 school year. I received an outstanding educator award as well.
