I have been teaching for 25 years. I have taught PreK, Kindergarten, First and Third Grades. I have taught in rural counties and city systems. I have been a Master teacher, helping teachers achieve success in their classrooms.
I use lots of hands-on materials as well as theme approaches. I have always loved incorporating science and social studies into my reading areas. I think teaching to the students interests are something that will help the students stay focused. I use lots of technology in my classroom.
I have been selected as Teacher of the Year. I was selected to present at the National Kindergarten Conference in Las Vegas. I have been a Master Teacher for TAP. The most important honor I receive each day is looking into the sweet faces of my students as well as having former students stop by classroom just to get a hug.
I have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from East Tennessee State University . I added a Master's in Elementary Education also from East Tennessee State University.
I love being a christian, wife, mom, nana and teacher. I can't imagine doing anything else in my life. I enjoy creating new things for my students to do. I also love to sewing, paint (even though Im not as good as Ms. Soozie). I love spending time outside in our yard and playing with our 2 dogs.
