TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a third grade teacher from Thomson, Georgia- just outside of Augusta. I've taught third grade for six years and first grade before that. Third grade is absolutely my favorite! I've recently been trained in Norman Webb's Depth of Knowledge and assessment design by Karen Bailey. I've been the Science and Social Studies curriculum chair for 3rd grade for the past five years. I've presented twice for Augusta State University's Impacting Student Learning Conferences. This past summer, I joined my county's Common Core Curriculum Design Team.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that I must do more than offer my students an education. It's my job to make sure they get it. I do this by having hands on lessons and interactive review games. I hope you will enjoy my teaching style!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year 2011- Thomson Elementary School
My favorite recognition came 3 years ago when my students stopped me during my class' end of the year recognition ceremony to present a medal, fashioned with staples and notebook paper, for "all the hard work and fun days."

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Augusta State University:
Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education -May 2005
Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education -May 2007
Reading Endorsement -May 2007
Specialist Degree in Teaching and Learning-May 2009
Master Teacher to a Swedish Exchange College Student-2009
Augusta State Mentor and Master Teacher- 2007 to present

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I grew up in the country and put myself through college by working as a Victim/Witness Advocate for the local District Attorney's Office. The courtroom is my second passion. My husband, Brian and I have a silly and cute one year old girl named Katie. Wow, things sure have changed since she arrived! :) Brian and I are always on the road, making the most of our lives. What drives me? I love when my brain feels like it is flying 90 miles per hour planning and designing a new way to help that one kid to GET IT.
