I am a lifelong learner and a thirty five plus year educator! I've taught all grades K-5, including Title I Reading, served as assistant principal, principal, and district's elementary curriculum supervisor.
My classroom is student-centered with activities for all learning modalities.
2012 Middle Grand Finalist for Tennessee's Teacher of the Year
I received my Bachelor's, Master's and EdS in Education from Middle Tennessee State University.
I'm a mother, wife, teacher, friend, daughter, blogger, and reader (with a few other interests thrown in here and there)! That about sums it up!
