Sixth Year Teacher
My teaching style changes with my students. I strive to reflect daily on my lessons, my goals and meeting my students' needs. I enjoy creating lesson plans that include relevance, creativity and something for all learning styles.
Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from the University of North Carolina at Asheville (NC Teacher Licensure Grades 6 - 12)
My family and I live in Shelby, NC where I am a sixth year teacher and I currently teach Math III. I also have experience teaching Math 1 at the high school level. After graduation from high school, instead of going straight to college, I began working. Throughout my twenties I worked as a waitress, a clerk at the counties tax office, in a factory and (for 9 years) as an Office Manager and Human Resources Assistant at a major distribution warehouse. I took night classes and earned an Associates Degree while working full time. I went back to college in 2009 to pursue my dream of teaching. My life experience is a true advantage in my classroom and it helps me provide my students with relevance, accountability and the value of hard work. I am currently a wife and a mother of two girls; a high school teacher full time; a group fitness instructor part time; and I an adjunct at a local community college. I am pursuing my Master's in Mathematics to open up the opportunity of teaching more at the college level after my children graduate.
