I'm a 2013 National Board Certified Teacher and received my certificate where my passion lies, in Early Childhood. I am a kindergarten teacher and love everything about working with the littlest scholars! I am continuously trying to increase my effectiveness as a teacher and am always looking for ways to innovate my classroom.
I use kinesthetic motions (referred to as gestures by my little scholars) and songs/chants to teach just about everything! I use hands-on activities because I believe that students learn best by doing.
Teacher of the month in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Bachelors Degree in Child and Adolescent Development from California State University, Fullerton Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Delta State University
I'm a California girl born and raised. Moved to rural Mississippi 4 years ago and have fallen in love with life in the south. I enjoy every minute with my students and have grown to love their families and the community. I am passionate about early childhood and couldn't imagine doing anything else! Connect With Me!
