I have taught for over 20 years. I've taught K, 1st, 3rd, 6th math and reading, and 7th grade reading. I am a National Board certified teacher as a middle childhood generalist.
I like to teach by keeping my students engaged in every aspect of the lesson. I use a lot of technology resources to accomplish this goal.
I was selected as a member of the 2013 LearnZillion DreamTeam teachers. I certified as a National Board certified teacher in 2002 and then successfully recertified in 2011. I've been selected as Teacher of the Year for my school three different times. I was the 2014 Technology Teacher of the Year for my school system. In 2015 I was selected to attend the Mount Vernon Summer Teacher Institute.
I received my Associate's degree from Gadsden State Community College and then went on to earn a B.S. in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from Jacksonville State University. Then I earned a Masters and EdS from the University of Alabama in Early Childhood/Elementary Education.
I love reading, history, and Alabama football!
