TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For a little over twenty years I have been teaching at the SAME school. I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grades. I also was a technology specialist. I have coached new teachers k-3 in the county. I have served as Lead Mentor, Technology Lead, Team Leader, and Science Lead.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We work hard and play hard in kindergarten! Integrating language arts and math into science and social studies is my passion. Children love to play, so I create resources where they are given the opportunity to play while learning!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year Nominee

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned my BA in elementary education at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I completed my MEd. in reading at George Mason University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I met my husband at my school, we got married, bought a house in the neighborhood, and had a son. Now the three of us go to school together every day. My life is my school!
