I am a 4th year teacher. I currently teach Reading and Language Arts, though I am in the process of being certified to teach any subject in grades 4-8.
I try to do as many hands on activities as possible, and I am heavy on group or partner work. I have found that students understand the material better, especially grammar, if they have time to discuss and practice with a peer tutor.
I received "Teacher of the Year" my second year teaching.
I attended college at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. I have taught at Houston County Middle School in Erin, TN, for the past 4 years.
I have two rescue dogs, Molly and Calle, and a wonderful husband, Nathan. We are expecting my first child, a boy named Benton, in August. I absolutely adore my students.
