I have taught second grade two years, kindergarten two years. I student taught in grades K-5 for two years. I also substitute for grades K-2 and worked in a K-2 after school program for three years. I have a total of 9 years of learning and working with children.
My teacher style is to be open with my students. I love to relate to my students so I make it a point to talk about my experiences as I teach so that we can make connections and they remain focused and interested. I have found that becoming friends with my students creates a healthy relationship and my students want to learn and please. This makes them great students and they grow so quickly.
I graduated with the Cum Laude award.
I graduated with my Bachelor of Science and Early Childhood Education degree from North Georgia University with honors. I also graduated with a Masters in Early Childhood Education. I have endorsements and am certified to teach in Gifted, English Language Learners, and Reading.
I have been married for two years and we just had our first baby. I am obsessed with my husband and little baby. My best friends are my sisters, parents, and sister-in law. My favorite past time and happy place are afternoons with family watching my nephews play outside. If there is music and watermelon involved, it's a plus.
