I was born in Florida, raised in Alabama. My passion for teaching started at an early age playing school with my younger sister. I graduated Cum Laude from The University of Montevallo in Montevallo, AL with a degree in Elementary Education (K-6.) I have taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade in the states of Alabama, Florida, and now in Mississippi.
My teaching style: Facilitator. Teachers who have a facilitator model teaching style tend to focus on activities. This teaching style emphasizes student-centered learning and there is much more responsibility placed on the students to take the initiative for meeting the demands of various learning tasks. This type of teaching style works best for students who are comfortable with independent learning and who can actively participate and collaborate with other students. Teachers typically design group activities which necessitate active learning, student-to-student collaboration and problem solving. This type of teacher will often try to design learning situations and activities that require student processing and application of course content in creative and original ways.
