I currently teach 3rd grade. I taught 4th grade for 5 years. This is my second year teaching 3rd grade. I love both ages. They grow so much in 3rd grade, and they can do so much in 4th grade.
I strive to involve each child in the learning process throughout the day, engaging them in interactive and higher order thinking actitivies. My National Board Certification is in literacy, which is my passion. A love of reading creates a life long learner.
Nationally Board Certified Teacher, 2010; Teacher of the Year, 2012
Master of Arts in Education from Furman University, 2008; Bachelor of Arts in Education from Furman University, 2006
I recently returned to teaching after taking 1 year off to be home with my daughter who is now 18 months old. Evenings at our house consist of puzzles, drawing, making "tents", and playing chase until my daughter's bedtime. After her bedtime, schoolwork it is! Who needs a clean house anyway? ;)
