TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I just finished my 12th year of teaching. I've taught 4th grade, 5th grade, 2nd grade, transitional first and kindergarten. My heart is with the younger grades. I am also the teacher of our school system's Parent English Class. I have been organizing this class for 10 years. It is the highlight of my week. I love my dedicated parents! I am a mentor teacher at my school which means I am a classroom teacher but I also evaluate other teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I really enjoy presenting a short mini-lesson and allowing the students to lead the learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Voted Elementary Teacher of the Year in 2014 by The Manchester Times

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from Carson Newman University Master's of Education in Instructional Leadership from Lipscomb University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have the sweetest husband, two beautiful daughters, and a new baby boy who all share a piece of my heart. I really love animals and am a vegetarian just because of it. Please visit my blog for teaching and mommy-ing ideas! Pencils to Pigtails
