I've been teaching early childhood for about 16 years. I started out teaching Pre-K in Gwinnett County, Georgia. After 5 years of Pre-K, I taught 1st grade and Kindergarten for 5 years in Dekalb County, Georgia. Currently, I'm teaching Kindergarten in Cobb County, Georgia (This is my 7th year here).
I use lots of pictures and text in my classroom. I believe that this environment helps my ELL / ESOL students get excited about learning new vocabulary words in addition to reading and writing. As an artist, I'm always looking for new ways to exercise creativity within the Common Core Curriculum.
Yet to be added
I went to high school in Pensacola, Florida (Washington High School - class of 1990). I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Troy University (Troy, Alabama) in 1995.
I'm new to Teachers Pay Teachers. I'm excited about sharing and collecting ideas for use in the classroom. I love to draw, so I hope that others enjoy my work as much as I enjoy making it!
