I've been teaching K-5 science for the past ten years for Gwinnett County Schools in GA.
I strongly believe in getting as many areas of the brain involved in learning as possible. I try to keep students moving, drawing, playing, hearing, seeing, and writing in hopes that they will carry what they learn in my classroom for the rest of their lives.
I have been nominated for teacher of the year for the past 3 years in a row.
Graduated from Francis Marion Unv in 1995 with a degree in English. Then, went back to school in 1999 and earned my MAT. Started my career in 2001 as a 3rd grade teacher but was able to apply for and gain a science specialist position at Minor Elementary in Lilburn, Ga. I also have a science endorsement certificate from the state of Ga.
I developed my interest in teaching while managing for a now defunct company called World of Science. After I received my certification, teaching science was a natural fit for me.
