I am an elementary school teacher in rural Georgia. I love teaching upper elementary, but 5th grade is by far my favorite! I am a true science geek, but I also have experience teaching social studies and ELA in upper elementary. Follow me on these platforms: Click here to visit my teaching blog, Teach in the Peach!

I want to build a community in my classroom in which students feel comfortable not only with each other, but with themselves. I like to challenge my students to think critically and work both independently, but also collaboratively. I love using technology in my classroom and trying out new tech related products with my students.
I was voted Teacher of the Year for my elementary school in 2014.
Graduated from Clayton State University in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Education. Graduated from Walden University in 2012 with a master's degree in Science Education Grades K-8.
I am married to a loving husband named Luke, and we have a beautiful daughter named Kaylee. We also have three large dogs name Bella, Batman, and Puppy! I love spending time with my family. my puppies, and my friends. I also love crafting and yard sales!
