I have been teaching for 6 years in Halifax County in North Carolina; I taught Middle School for three years and in 2012, I began teaching in an Elementary School where I held K-5 classes.
I believe in Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligence; when I teach I incorporate different strategies to accommodate the varied learning needs and style of my students. I am very democratic in my approach; I always allow students to make suggestions on how we want to achieve our goal for the day. I also expose them to 21st century life skills that they need to be familiar and be adept with to be globally-competitive, responsible and self-sufficient citizens in the future!

I am a proud Mom of a 21-month-old baby who at the moment is my source of joy and inspiration to strive more and be able to make a difference in someone else's life.
