TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for middle school for 22 years. I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grades in the areas of language arts and social studies. I currently teach 8th grade language arts. I also served as the Model United Nations adviser for 14 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is definitely based on getting the attention of my students. If you want kids to learn you have to get them excited about the material. Now, I know that not everything can be fun, but if you can find a way to hook your students with the fun stuff, they will continue to be engaged when the material is a little, shall we say, "boring"!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was the 2007 teacher of the year at my school. I am currently our school's English Language Arts Department Head.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated in 1996 from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades Education and in 2016 with a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I also have a Teacher Support Specialist endorsement and the Gifted Endorsement.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have two children. A 15 year old daughter Hilarie, who plays travel softball, and keeps me on the run all the time! I also have a son, Justin, who is a Junior at Georgia Southern University where he is a marketing major.
