I have 7 years of experience teaching in elementary school. I have taught grades 3rd and 1st (mostly 1st). I currently teach first grade in Bossier City, Louisiana. I also have experience tutoring students in all grades K-5.
Since I am a 1st grade teacher, I teach using a kinesthetic and tactile approach. I also integrate technology into every lesson I teach so that I may reach my students who are growing up in a technology driven world. I have used several different techniques, such as Whole Brain Teaching, Kagan, Landmark, and Brain Gym, to reach all the different types of learners in my classroom.
Although I am still early in my career, I like to think my greatest honor is my students. I have yet to win any awards, but knowing that my students think I am the best is good enough for me!
I have my Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts (primary focus on History) from Louisiana State University in Shreveport. After completing my Bachelors Degree, I went back to receive my Teaching Certification at Louisiana State University in Shreveport. I am qualified to teach grades 1-5 and middle school history.
I am a wife, a mom, and a teacher. My husband and I have been married for 7 years. Our daughter goes to school with me, which is such a blessing. I love being able to see her throughout the day and spend time with her! She is in first grade, which is the BEST grade of all! We enjoy spending time as a family by going to see movies, hunting, fishing, and just being outdoors.
