This is my fifth year teaching Kindergarten. Prior to teaching, I was a Kindergarten Assistant for 6 years and a Special Education Assistant for 10 years. I decided to pursue a teaching certificate to fulfill a dream. I went back to college with my two daughters. My poor husband had 3 girls in college at once. Finally we are all finished. Teaching Kindergarten is my dream job. I love seeing the growth in the children each day. It makes my day when I see their faces light up when they realize that they are learning. I love making my kiddos know that they are readers and writers.
I have a "Hands-On" approach with Kindergarten children. I believe in challenging my children each day and holding them to a higher level. I have high expectations for my Kindergarten children. I believe learning should be fun and engaging.
I graduated college with a 4.0 grade point average. My classroom was the Math Studio classroom this year for Kindergarten teachers in my district.
I graduated from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina with a Birth-Kindergarten license. I am also certified to teach K-6.
I love being a wife, mother and "Nanny" to three beautiful grandchildren.
