Been in education for close to 17 years. I spent years as a volunteer, then a sub, then a parapro, then finally a teacher. I've been teaching for 10 years now and have taught kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I am currently back in 3rd, and it is my fav. I love my little kiddos!
I love to make learning fun, engaging, exciting, innovative. I use and create a variety of resources to help my students make connections, build on prior knowledge, and get the most out of their educational experience as possible.
Best Teacher in the World...by my students:-)
BA from Piedmont College in Demorest GA M.Ed from Walden University ...currently pursuing my EdD at Walden University
I am the mother to 3 children. One who is 19 (almost 20), a 17 year old, and a 3 year old. Also, to one big fur baby (who thinks he is small). I love teaching. Truth is, I have been mama/mentor to hundreds of kids. As teachers, we all know they all become a part of our hearts. I couldn't imagine doing anything more important with my life than nurturing the minds and hearts of children!
