This is my ninth year teaching, and I've taught in Tennessee, Colorado, and California. I've spent my entire career in kindergarten! I love the way kindergartners light up and get excited about learning. They inspire me every day!
I love hands-on, partner/group work to facilitate social growth and inquiry skills. I believe that all children, regardless of ability level, have something to give, so I try to provide an environment where all children feel comfortable expressing themselves!
Professional Development Leader, Ed Tech Coach, Site Leadership Team
I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BS in Child and Family Studies: Early Childhood Education, and I also received my MS in Education with a focus on ECE!
I love collaborating and sharing ideas/resources/stories/laughs with other teachers!
