TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 12 years, K-5, except for second grade. I have also tutored 3rd -5th graders, and taught K-5th grades in summer school, as well as 6th -12th grades in summer school. My first several years of teaching were in a K-12 school on Hatteras Island off the NC coast, with a total student population of less than 500. Both summer school stints were serving all students who needed remediation in those grade levels at once! Quite a challenge!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am dedicated to teaching my students. I chose Early Childhood with intention so that I could make the most difference possible in the lives of my students. I am careful to learn as much as I can about the whole child, to understand what their life is like outside of school, so that I can maximize the time I have with them in school. I establish an environment of safety and caring, a place to look forward to coming to, to discover the myriad intricacies of this wonderful world in order to inspire a natural curiosity, and create lifelong learners. I particularly love teaching reading...my favorite grade (and my current teaching grade) is first grade, where I am witness to this most wondrous process, wherein a non-reader becomes a voracious reader! I never tire of it!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I achieved National Board status in 2000, as an Early Childhood Generalist. I am just diving in to the process again this year, with high hopes of once again attaining National Board Certified status.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

In 1993, I graduated from Florida State University's College of Education with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. In 2012, I received my Master's degree in Reading and Literacy from Marygrove College in Detroit, Michigan.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have two wonderful children, and two delightful grandchildren as well. At any given time, I have an array of animals; currently I have Clio, a Lab/Boxer sweetheart, T-bird and Tulip, a pair of parakeets, and an aquarium of tropical fish, who will be headed for the classroom shortly. I love to garden, read, and spend time with my family. I also really enjoy playing the keyboard in my church's band.
