I am starting my 15th year of teaching. During that time I have taught 4th and 5th grades. I am currently teaching 4th grade. I absolutely love teaching! I have the best job in the world!
I believe in making learning fun and engaging for students. Ron Clark is my inspiration and I strive to incorporate many of his philosophies in my classroom. I love songs, games, and hands-on activities and incorporate them on a daily basis. I try to focus on my students' interests and weave them into my instruction.
* I have my National Board Certification in Middle Childhood/Generalist. I earned this certification in 2008. * 2012 Campbellsville University award for Excellence in Teaching recipient
I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Murray State University. Go Racers!
