This is my fifth year teaching, and I've taught in Tennessee, Colorado, and California! I've spent almost my entire career in kindergarten with a stint in third grade, too! I love the way kindergarteners light up and let loose in their learning. They inspire me every day!
I love hands-on, partner/group work to facilitate social growth and inquiry skills. I believe that all children, regardless of ability level, have something to give, so I try to provide an environment where all children feel comfortable expressing themselves!
Professional Development Leader, Ed Tech Jedi
I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BS in Child and Family Studies: Early Childhood Education, and I also received my MS in Education with a focus on ECE!
I love collaborating and sharing ideas/resources/stories/laughs with other teachers!
