I taught third grade for four years, and I am currently teaching fifth grade.
I try to use brain based strategies when developing my lesson plans. Using United Streaming video clips, teachertube videos, you tube videos, real world situations, and manipulatives has proven to be very successful for me. Keeping children actively involved in the lesson by using manipulatives, individual white boards, ActivBoard lessons, and a document camera is a priority for me when developing lessons. The learning village units have proven to be extremely helpful.
I am a member of Alpha Delta Kappa.
I obtained my bachelor's degree from Dalton State University and my master's degree from Western Governor's University. I am currently working on my specialist degree through Piedmont College.
Teaching is a second career for me. I worked 20 years in the medical field, and then I chose to return to school for my teaching degree so that I could give back to my community.
