I am in my 15th year of teaching. I am Nationally Certified. My concentration is in math. I love teaching and love to integrate as much technology as I can! Because I was never satisfied with items I found online and in books, I started to create my own products. My friends were always telling me I should post my items on Teacher Pay Teacher so, I did!
I am laid back. I enjoy watching the learning take place. My room is usually not quiet... There is usually a buzz of learning within my room. My philosophy is based around what one of my college professors said to me in class one day. -The person doing the work, is the person learning. Are you the one up and talking and showing or are your children the ones up and doing?
I am honored just get to know and love the kids I teach. I am awarded with lots and lots of hugs and smiles!
I graduated from high school with honors and from ECU Summa Cum Laude. Math is my concentration. I want to earn my Master's in math education, but I am just waiting for the right time in my life- two little boys + a Marine husband + total dedication to my classroom = no time for that degree!
I am a Mom! I love it! I have two boys ages 12 and 9. They are so different from one another. Both are a blessing. My younger son has cerebral palsy and cystic fibrosis. Watching him thrive and never back down from a challenge has taught me to love to the fullest and not to let the little things ruffle my feathers!
