Gifted students will never fit into a box. They will dismantle it, refashion a stage, and climb upon it and sing.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have spent most of my teaching career in fifth grade. I taught third early on for a year. I was the children's pastor/coordinator at my church for 10 years before finishing my undergrad degree in teaching. This experience helped me bring in an understanding of the personal and spiritual part of the children I would later teach. I now serve gifted students in 5th grade. I love what I do!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in teaching through doing, experiencing, and sharing. I want my students to have opportunities everyday to learn in exciting and new ways. I continually grow in my own learning so that I can challenge my gifted students. I try to relate what they learn to what they experience so that my students see the relationship between education and life.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

It is simply an honor to work with wonderful people who care about the difference they make every day in their classrooms.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

University of Georgia Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education; Walden University Masters Degree in Reading, Writing, and Early Literature; Valdosta State University Specialists Degree in Instructional Technology; Gifted Certified Online Teaching Certified

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am married with two sons who make everyday an adventure.
