During the 17 years that I've been teaching I've taught in Florida, Tennessee, and North Carolina (I am most definitely a southern girl!). I have my National Board Certification, as well as a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Reading.
I am a teacher who strives to make learning fun and engaging, which I feel is key in achieving high student achievement!
