This will by my fourth year teaching Kindergarten and I absolutely love it! My first year I taught second grade and the year before that, I did a full year internship in fifth grade while I completed my Master's. I am so glad I was given the opportunity to teach Kindergarten at my school because I know this is where I truly belong!
I am a big believer in hands on teaching. I love for my students to use manipulatives whenever possible. Art projects to supplement learning are also a must!

I graduated from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 2009 with my Bachelor's in English with a minor in Elementary Education. I returned to following year to complete my Master's in Teacher Education while completing a year long internship in fifth grade and writing an Action Research project on the effects of Writers' Workshop.
I currently reside in Knoxville, TN with my husband our dog, Jasper, and our cat, Sherlock.
