I taught adult education for 2 years. I have been teaching grades K-2 for the past 6 years in the Metropolitan Nashville Public School System. I am currently a First Grade EL teacher. I have taught EL for the past 5 years.
I enjoy teaching students how to learn through listening, reading, writing, and speaking. I am a hands on learner myself. I like to learn how to do things by hand.
I graduated from Tennessee State University in 2005 with a BA in Elementary Education. I completed my EL endorsement from TSU in 2011.
I was born and raised in a small farm town in Iowa. I have lived in Tennessee for over ten years.
