I began my teaching journey in 2002 with a wonderful group of fourth graders. Since 2002 I have taught fifth, third, and first grade. Now, I am jumping into the fantastic world of Kindergarten.
I enjoy a noisy, productive classroom!
I know this is cheesy, but the only award I need is to see the look on the kids faces when they realize they can do something they couldn't do before!
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education from The University of Alabama-Huntsville. In 2005, I earned a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Phoenix. I am currently working on my second Master's Degree in Administration.
My life is never dull. I have a little girl that keeps me super busy, and I also love to run. I have completed a few half marathons, and would love to actually complete a full one.
