I am a true early childhood teacher! Currently I am entering my 7th year teaching PreK. I have also taught kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade. Somehow I missed 1st grade altogether! I have a masters and I am working toward an Education Specialist Degree in Early Childhood.
My classroom functions in small groups for most of the day. When working with the littlest of learners, the smaller the group the more they learn and the more we can learn about them. I use what I learn about my students to guide my teaching throughout the year. If they know all of their letters, sounds, and sight words, we move toward blending and medial sounds.
During the 2013-2014 school year I was Teacher of the Year for my elementary school.
Originally, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. After my daughter was born I returned to school and graduated with a Master of Arts in Teaching focusing on Early Childhood education.
I have one teenager daughter as well as one dog and one cat. We live in the South and rarely see snow, but we get to the beach often!
