TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The 2017-2018 school year will be my 11th year teaching. I've taught K and 1st...the primary grades have my heart!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Things can get crazy in first grade, but I try to have some structure! I teach content areas through reading and writing whenever possible. Reading is my passion!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated summa cum laude from Wesleyan College in 2007. I have presented in several local and national conferences including the Association for Literacy Educators and Researchers, Literacy Research Association, International Literacy Association, and the Georgia Reading Association!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated with a BA in Early Childhood Ed in 2007. In 2014 I received my M.Ed in Reading, Language, and Literacy. I am certified P-5 in Early Childhood and K-12 as a reading specialist. I also have my ESL and Teacher Support Coaching endorsement!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I play the piano (I was a piano performance major for a very short while in college)...I love to shop and craft...I have a 5 year old daughter...I love the color pink, monogrammed things, and Tervis tumblers!
