The 2010-2011 school year marks my fifteenth year working with students in the public school setting, most of which have been spent in the middle schools of western North Carolina.
I work to create respectful and productive classroom environments where both students and teachers work together to be successful. Humor, smiles, and laughing along with clear communication help create these enjoyable learning settings.
