Teaching is my calling! I have taught Kindergarten, First, and Second grade over the past 16 years. My teaching career began in the beautiful state of sunny South Florida, and I am currently teaching equally wonderful students in the state of Georgia.
My teaching style is very structured, but I am wise enough to know when to lead and when to allow my students to guide their own learning. My classroom environment is warm, safe, respectful, and full of curiosity.
