TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching first grade for 13 years. I have a master's degree in Divergent Learners, which focused on diverse ways of teaching diverse children. I recently received my National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist. I teach in my hometown elementary school where I once was a student. I have been in the same classroom all 13 years teaching first grade. I hope to be in the first grade for life!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I used a balanced literacy approach with a focus on Guided Reading small groups. I use the Daily Five and LOVE IT! It truly has been the key to organizing my literacy block as well as establishing awesome procedures and routines. I have also begun teaching Math using a similar approach. I am currently developing my own system, "Math in Motion," where my students rotate through different Math activities while I meet with small groups based on individual needs. I run a tight ship, but we have fun singing and dancing our way to becoming second graders!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My highest honor to date was being named Beginning Teacher of the Year for my district for the 2000-2001 school year. It was an honor to be chosen for this award.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended York Comprehensive High School in York, SC. I received a bachelors degree from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC. I received my master's degree from Columbia Colege in Columbia, SC.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I moonlight as a singer in a band on weekends. :)
