I started as a Literacy Aide for 3rd-5th graders which showed me my love for teaching! I student taught in Kindergarten and 5th Grade. I taught first grade for two years in Virginia where I also worked in reading and math with 4th and 5th grade students in our after school instructional program. I am about to begin teaching first grade in Texas! I am very excited for this new adventure.
My teaching style is fluid. I am always looking to learn and add more excitement to my students' learning! I live to be creative, so I am always looking to try new things. I use flexible seating and absolutely love small group instruction. I want my students to know they are loved and important the second the walk through the door and leave me as confident, lifelong learners!
I was honored to be named Teacher of the Year at my school for the 2017-2018 school year.
I received my Bachelors in Psychology and Masters in Education from Virginia Tech! Go Hokies!!
I am married to my wonderful husband, Garrett, and we live in Dallas, Texas. I love warm weather, college football, and all things crafty!
