I started teaching in Fall 2012. As of 2020, I have taught 3 separate grades at three different schools in two different counties. In college, I only worked in 3-5 classrooms and KNEW that was where I wanted to be. Well, fate had a different plan and I have spent most of my career teaching 1st and 2nd grade and LOVE the tiny humans. Banner Graphics yoDesigned by yolypakoro / Freepik
I never learned well sitting behind a desk and I find I don't teach well when my kids are sitting at their desks. I am all about giving the kids choices, and responsibility, for their learning. I try to create materials that get them moving, thinking, and growing.
Yet to be added
My mother was a teacher and I have known that I wanted to teach from a very young age. I grew up in Farmville, NC and attended public schools K-12. However, my mother homeschooled my two younger siblings so I have a lot of homeschool knowledge as well. I attended Barton College where I obtained my B.S. in Elementary Education.
I teach the small North Carolina town I grew up in. I have grown very passionate about working with students who live in poverty. Helping them break the poverty cycle through education is my ultimate "why".
