TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have twenty years of experience at four different schools. Currently I work at a school in Johns Creek, GA, which is a Fulton County School.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My heart is in kindergarten and I try to make learning as fun as I can. I believe there is a place for worksheets, but I don't believe all learners do best with them so I try to use a variety of activities instead. I believe in differentiation, but I also believe that it is a tremendous amount of work, so I try to create things with options for differentiation. I also like to create things that are fun to make but have a learning purpose as well. Where I work naps and free choice center time no longer exist. I am trying to keep having fun while learning alive along with cute projects.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've been nominated for Teacher of the Year several times, have been a finalist several times, but I have not earned the title yet.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University, and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Central Michigan University. The latter I received from a satelite program here in Georgia.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I spend a lot of my personal time doing work for school, but I try to get in some shoe shopping, baking, and time with friends as well.
