TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for over ten years, with the bulk of my experience being in teaching First Grade. Though I've taught older elementary students, my heart and talent is with teaching little ones. I have an endorsement in ESOL education and extensive experience in teaching students with disabilities.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is organized and efficient, but also a wonderful, noisy, mess of little ones creating, guessing, trying, failing, trying again, and succeeding! I utilize music, movement, kagan strategies, and lots and lots of gummy bears to keep my students engaged and I try very hard to meet my students wherever they are academically, socially, emotionally, and gently nudge them out of their comfort zones and into the land of their highest potential.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I received the second place prize in the Hillsborough County Praeceptor Award writing contest, in which teachers were nominated and submitted personal statements about their work with students with disabilities. I have been Team Leader of my department for the past 3 years. I am also very involved with the community, especially the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, The Educators' Prayer Network, and Special Olympics Florida.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended and graduated from the University of South Florida with a B.S. in Elementary Education in 2002. Before that, I graduated from Hillsborough High School. I have wanted to be a teacher since the first grade, and I believe that all my life my education has pointed toward my eventual goal of becoming an educator myself.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am married to my high school sweetheart, who tends to be more of an entrepreneur than I am, but is also my greatest encourager. Together we have two beautiful daughters who actually attend the school that I teach at. I love to write, shop, watch movies, and I even dabble in painting a bit (though I'm not very good). I am very blessed and I attribute all of my achievements and good fortune to the Lord's loving favor and amazing grace.
