I have a Master's degree +30 in Education and Business. I've taught in an inner city school in Memphis City Schools. I have loved every minute of teaching... MINUS the paperwork. I now work with new moms in child development & family bonding. It is kind of like tutoring with a one on one curriculum. I love it. There is so much more to teaching than just lecturing on the high points of a subject. As a teacher, you have the opportunity to truly touch someone's life, and inspire them to be more. I believe that. I truly do. If you do too, then I applaud you. =)
Fun, Creative, Artistic. I greet my students each and every day. I think it is the beginning of a beautiful relationship every single day. They will act like you're an idiot at the first of the year. By Thanksgiving, they will nod back. By Christmas, you got them hooked. I learned it from Harry Wong. It was the best advice I ever received. I enjoy it. Simply put. It's fun for me!
Received a grant from The Orpheum Theatre to take 90 of my students to see "A MidSummer Night's Dream". That was my favorite one, that I am the most proud of... because I got to see 90 of my students' walk into the Orpheum in Memphis, and gasp in 'awwe'.

I am just a small town girl who believes I have the world at my fingertips. I'm happiest when I'm in front of a classroom, and when I'm taking pictures in the middle of a pasture. I love watching movies and shopping on eBay. I may do a little pinteresting, too! ;) "All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." - Thomas E. Lawrence.
