11 years of teaching awesome fifth graders; "Sweet 16" Finalist for Alabama's Teacher of the Year in 2015-2016
My favorite compliment to my teaching style was someone who said I was "fearless" in the classroom. Fearless---I love that! Because when God calls you to something, He doesn’t call you to meekly serve or to slightly work toward the goal that lies before you. He equips us to be brave, to be fearless. Ultimately, that is a reward of teaching. To see your bravery and fearlessness culminate in a child understanding something that seemed impossible.

I love teaching, traveling, missions, and math. Oh and Downton Abbey. Can't forget Downton Abbey. :)
