I have been teaching for 13 years, 12 of those years have been in 4th grade. I took the opportunity to loop with my students this year and I am teaching 5th now. I have lots of experience with EC students and ESL, having taught in an inclusion classroom.
I am loving, firm and believe all children can learn given the right environment. To me it is important to develop a classroom community and then begin helping my students to gain knowledge. I do a lot of small group teaching with Guided Reading and pride myself on differentiation.
I am a member of our school district's Tech Team, making me the Instructional Technology Facilitator for our school. I was given the honor of the 2009-10 Teacher of the Year for our school.
1998 graduate of UNC-Charlotte with a degree in Elementary Education
I am a mother of two beautiful daughters and I have a wonderful, supportive husband.
