I taught 3rd grade for 17 years. I am now a behavior interventionist at a middle school.
My teaching style is all over the place...just like the learning styles of our children. One thing is for sure, if I'm bored with it, chances are, so are the kids. Above all, I simply work hard to make my lessons thorough, standards-based, and fun.
I was Teacher of the Year at Hunt Meadows Elementary in 2006. I received an Excellence Award from the South Carolina Chapter of the National School Public Relations Association for a video I made for my school in 2010. In 2013 I was honored as a WYFF News 4 Golden Apple Award winner.
I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from Furman University in 2000. In 2001 I received a Masters degree in Applied Behavior Analysis also from Furman. In 2017 I received my Ed.S in School Leadership.
