Professional Certification 2012: Education Specialist, Teacher Leader 2008: Master’s Degree, Elementary (K-6) 2005: Bachelor’s Degree, Elementary (K-6) I am a dedicated teacher who has eight years invested with the largest school district in the state of Alabama, the Mobile County Public School System. I enjoyed my first six years teaching kindergarten. In my seventh year I transitioned to the role of a Technology Support Teacher (TST). The duties of a TST allowd me to conduct and maintain training and training schedules, attend technology meetings, help with grants and funding, implement a technology-integrated curriculum, fix and upgrade computers, install software, troubleshoot computers and ultimately coordinate technology at Hutchens Elementary School. On May 05, 2012, I graduated from the University of West Alabama with an Education Specialist Degree in Teacher Leadership.
I use an innovative teaching style that focuses on using multimedia technology in a problem-based learning environment. I use multimedia to adapt the contents of the material. By incorporating digital media elements into my teaching style, the students are more motivated to pay attention to the information presented and ultimately, retain the information at a higher degree.

I am an educator. I am avid about supporting the education of others. I believe in challenging assumptions about the way things are and can be. I treat administrators, teachers, parents and students with the same respect that I expect. In relationships, I strive to be humble, considerate, honest, kind, and forgiving. I merit and keep my word. In everything I do, I give my interest, my enthusiasm, my passion, and most importantly, myself. I hold myself accountable and give myself credit. I strive to encourage and support others, learn about others, and contribute to the betterment of my school and district.
