I have been teaching in the public school system for seven years. I permanent subed in kindergarten and third grade. I then started teaching in second grade. I am currently in my fifth year teaching kindergarten. I have co-taught and taught full day inclusion.
Differentiated instruction based on each individual student's needs in the classroom. I teach to each unique child not to the middle. I love to teach by units and thematically. I feel it helps children relate to what they are learning!
Arnold Mill Elementary School Staff Member of the Month in 2012. Nominated for the Visionary Award in 2012/2013 school year for starting the Kindness is Contagious club by my principal and PTA at Arnold Mill Elementary School.
I have a bachelors degree in early childhood education pre-k - Grade 5. I graduated with a reading endorsement. I am Orton Gillingham trained. I was part of the SLO (Student Learning Objectives) Assessment Creation with Cherokee County School System for Kindergarten Math. We developed the standardized assessment that will take place in the 2013/2014 School Year. I was also part of the co-teaching pilot program with Kennesaw State University (The Student Teaching Program) the last two years.
I will have a website and blog coming soon! I am a Christian teacher who believes in every child. Jesus gave me the gift of teaching! I want to use this gift for His kingdom whether it is in the public school, sunday school, or the homeschool environment. When I create my documents I put a lot of thought, love and prayer in to each one!
