This is my 16th year of teaching. I've taught ALL of the elementary grades. I started out teaching 6th grade. After two years, I went down to 1st grade, then to 2nd. I've been teaching 2nd grade for 7 years. I teach all of the major subjects. I am also certified as an Educational Technology Facilitator.
I believe that every student can learn. I try to meet them where they are. I try to be the facilitator of their learning as much as possible. However, at times I do tend to be more of the "modeler" or the demonstrator.
Recently earned a technology facilitator add on to my teaching certificate!
I am a 2000 graduate of Nichols State University... with a degree in Elementary Education Grades 1-8. I'm excited to say that I just earned an add-on to my certificate for Technology Facilitator.
I've been married for 26 years. I have two (grown) children, and 3 step-children. I have seven precious grandchildren ranging in age from 10 down to 3.
