I teach a k-5 self-contained classroom for children with special needs. It's very much like the old one room schoolhouse. I taught a resource classroom from 1999-2004. I've been in my one room schoolhouse since 2004. I am privileged to teach in an arts integrated, Title I school. We use the arts to teach the core academic standards.
Arts integration is used to meet the needs of all learners in my classroom.
In 2009 I received the Molly Pratt Spirit Award for arts integration in my classroom. I have also been voted Teacher of the Year at my school in 2004, 2008, and 2012 by my peers.
I graduated from East Tennessee State University in 1999 with a degree in modified and comprehensive special education.
