I have taught 1 year of regular kindergarten, 2 years of honors kindergarten, and 2 years of a transitional 1st grade class. I'm also trained in Project Read, DIBELS, LIPS, Math Their Way, etc.
I'm a very hands-on learner, therefore, I'm a very hands-on teacher. I believe in having a great time while you teach and your students will have a great time learning. I love creating my themes around books and instill a love of reading in my students.
During my 5 years of teaching, I have been voted Teacher of the Year 2 times, by 2 different school faculties. Teacher of the Year 2010-2011 and 2013-2014. I have also served as the ELA Kindergarten Teacher Leader for our school.
I received an Early Elementary Education (PK-3) degree from Louisiana Tech University in 2009.
My husband and I were recently blessed with our first child, Colton. We made the decision for me to stay home one year with our little man and I will return to my kindergarten classroom next year. This was such a difficult decision for us, because teaching is such a strong passion of mine. However, I am loving the extra time with our little guy and I wouldn't trade this year for anything.
