I have taught for 11 years, 5th grade, 4th grade, and EIP (Early Intervention Program) in Georgia. Currently, I am teaching 4th grade once again!
I am constantly looking for ways to engage and motivate students beyond basic memorization exercises and the all too often regurgitation of facts. I strive to promote creative and critical thinking skills while providing students with ample opportunities to develop autonomy and independence in their learning endeavors.

I have one daughter, Avery (6), who is the best teacher of all!
