TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a fifth year elementary teacher in a wonderful public school district in central Arkansas. I taught third grade for one year and first grade for four years. I also have experience in PreK and second grade. Before entering the education profession, I was a marketing director. I love teaching little first graders how to read!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use visuals when teaching in my classroom, so that kiddos are engaged and able to recall, anchor, reference, and use self-help strategies to take ownership of their learning. I also believe that my students learn best by doing, so we incorporate movement, dancing, and cooperative learning in my classroom, as well!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My favorite moments are questions from my students about the Word Buddies, such as: "Are we going to meet a new Word Buddy Character today?" or "When are we going to get that Word Buddy on our ring?"

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

English as a Second Language endorsement, Arkansas Tech University, 2018; Master of Arts in Teaching, University of Central Arkansas, 2012; Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Arkansas Tech University, 2004

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in central Arkansas with my husband, Jeff, and our sweet Yorkie Pomeranian, Bizzy. I am an avid runner, reader, nature lover, lifelong learner, Netflix watcher, creator, and homebody. My husband, who is an illustrator and graphic designer of 20+ years, and I created the characters and this system as a way to give kids (and teachers) a memorable and fun experience while learning a skill or concept! Each character and product is drawn and designed by us with six and seven year olds in mind. We hope that you find it as useful as I have in my classroom and look forward to using it every day!
