I have taught for 11 years. I have taught third for 5 years, second and fifth for 1 year, and first for 4 years. This year I will be starting a new chapter and be an Academic Instructional Technology Coach for my school district. I can't wait for this new journey to begin. I have my Reading Endorsement (2012) and have co-taught the Reading Endorsement for my county. I have my Teacher-Leader Endorsement Coaching (2014), TSC (2015), and Inspiring Leadership Endorsement (2016)! I have presented at Literacy Conferences on Reading and Writing hosted by Georgia College and State University (2012-2013) and Georgia Reading Association (2013), GADOE (2013), and the 23rd Annual KSU Conference on Literature for Children and Young Adults (2014), GCTM (2014/2016), LRA (2014), IRA (2015), LERA (2015), and Georgia Western University Literacy and Beyond Conference (2015/2016). I have also lead professional development at schools in my district and for the district. If you are in the area and are interested in what I am presenting or wanting to chat/visit please email me at email@example.com.
I believe in and I am a strong supporter of efficacy, differentiation with rigor, hands on project-based learning, the arts, and the integration of all subjects in a standards based classroom setting.
My Teacher is Tops Award in 2010. I was the 2012-2013 Teacher of the Year for James H. Porter Elementary.
I moved around a lot when I was younger, going to 13 different schools from K-12th grade. I graduated from Wesleyan College in 2006 with a B.A. in Early Childhood Education and in 2009 with a M.A. in Early Childhood Education. July 2012, I graduated from Georgia College and State University with a EDS in Curriculum and Instruction in Early Childhood Education. Through all of my experiences, it has made me into a flexible person and able to bloom where ever I am planted!
