After working as a substitute teacher, I went back to school and received a Masters of Art in Teaching degree in Early Childhood Education from Piedmont College. My student teaching experience was in a kindergarten classroom, and for the last three years I have worked in two elementary schools and one middle school as a reading and math tutor. Currently, I am teaching fourth grade at a private Christian school.
I believe, first and foremost, that every child can learn and every child deserves the opportunity to learn. I work to tailor my teaching to my students' individual needs and do all I can to make the subject matter interesting and relevant to their lives. More than anything, I try to teach in an engaging way so that students can become involved in learning with me.
I graduated (relieved!) with a 4.0 GPA from Piedmont College.
What did I always want to be when I grew up? A teacher, of course, but I took a round-about way of getting there. After high school, determined to be a flutist in a symphony, I attended Lee University as a music major. Half-way through my program I decided to switch majors and went into Intercultural Studies. About five years later I realized my desire to teach and went back to school at Piedmont College for teacher certification and a MAT degree in Early Childhood Education.
I've been happily married for 11 years now to my very best friend. Together we have four awesome children, ages 16 months, 5 years, 7 years and 9 years. We are very active in our church where my husband is a youth and children's minister and I help wherever I can! I also enjoy outside adventures that involve tents and/or canoes, crocheting, music and making anything I can find on Pinterest. :)
