TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an investment advisor turned teacher, although I was really always a teacher. The oldest daughter of teachers, I felt a need to show how different I was from my parents. I majored in business and had an investment career that lasted nearly ten years. Then one day one very wise client told me, "You should have been a teacher. You have a way of explaining my portfolio to me that no other advisor has ever been able to do." With that, a seed was planted. I reevaluated my career, and I suddenly realized that turning out like my parents didn't seem so bad after all. I quit my job; I enrolled in a master's program in education; and I earned my teaching certificate. I began teaching developmental reading and writing at Southern Illinois University. I have taught high school English, and I am currently teaching 7th grade language arts.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have high expectations for all students, and I communicate those expectations early and often. I am flexible, but consistent.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In 2011, I was named a "Culturally Responsive Demonstration Classroom" by my school district and by the Center for Culture and Language in Los Angeles, California.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

In 1998, I earned a bachelor's degree in communication and marketing from Southeast Missouri State University. In 2007, I earned a master's degree in education from McKendree University. I am a member of Phi Kappa Phi honor society and Kappa Delta Pi education honor society.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

After a rewarding career teaching high school in St. Louis, Missouri, my family moved to Kentucky for my husband's job. Again, I taught developmental writing at a local community college, and then found a middle school teaching position. Who knew I would like seventh grades as much as I do?
