I have been teaching for 13 years. I am currently teaching third grade and really enjoy this grade level.
I think that children learn best when they are actively engaged and are provided support from their peers and teacher. I utilize cooperative learning activities, project based learning, and integrate technology in many of my lessons.
National Board Certification in 2006
I graduated fron the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 1998 earning a B.A. in Elementary Education. I am currently completing my graduate studies in elementary education at UNC-Pembroke and will graduate in May 2013
I am married and have one son who just started middle school. Not sure if I will survive this age. I give huge props to middle school teachers. In my free time I enjoy reading and spending time with my family. I teach Sunday school and believe that I am using my gift of teaching to impact the lives of children.
