I have taught 5th and 6th grade for the past 16 years.
My style varies depending on the subject I'm teacher, but for the most part, I'm a demonstrator. I believe children at the intermediate level need to have a lot of guidance and modeling to be successful.
I have received an Excellence in Teaching Award from Campbellsville University, but my most cherished award was being nominated by a student to receive a "Most Polite Teacher" award.
I graduated from the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, KY in 1996, majoring in Middle Grade Education. My Master's Degree and Rank I is in School Counseling.
I have two sons, both of whom are now in college. My Schnauzer, Oliver, is like a third child.
