I have taught 5th grade, 4th grade, 2nd grade and 1st grade in Georgia. I have really enjoyed each of the grade levels, as they have all allowed me to grow as a teacher. I am currently teaching first grade and loving every minute!
I want to encourage a love of life-long learning in my students. I try to do this by using relevant, real-world problems and projects in the classroom. I enjoy using both whole group and small group instruction, so that I can meet each student at his or her current level and help them grow from there. I want for all of my students to have fun in the classroom and feel love and respected each day!

I currently live in Georgia with my wonderful husband and our hilarious bulldog, Lola. In my free time I love to read, paint, watch movies, and develop/search for new ideas to use in the classroom. I hope that I can create something that is not only useful for me and my students, but for you and your students as well!
