I have been teaching for more than ten years. Most of my experience has been with fifth grade, but I have also taught gifted education in first, third, fourth, and fifth grades. I have evolved and continue to evolve in my beliefs and strategies. I find it just as important to remain a student as I do to be a teacher. These two worlds coexist in my career so that I can continue to accomplish what I feel I have purposefully been driven to do. I hold a Masters in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment. I am a certified teacher in Georgia who currently works at a K-8 school. I have earned multiple endorsements on my certificate including: Reading, Gifted Education, and Coaching.
I keep things relevant to current data supported successful instructional strategies. I believe the most important part of being a teacher is establishing a relationship with each student and then providing quality instruction and assessments that engage the students both in and outside of the classroom. I begin each week with a lesson plan to outline but not dictate what is to take place in the classroom for that week. I teach in pencil! Things can and do get edited and revised for improvements.
