During college, I assisted in a Georgia Pre-K classroom for 2 years. I have 7 years of experience working in a traditional school teaching kindergarten and I have taught 2nd grade for 2 years in a virtual school. I also hosted the Teacher Talk Radio show where teachers joined together to collaborate with experts. I am now journeying around the country homeschooling/roadschooling my children.
My teaching style is student driven and focused on doing to learn. My goal is to find out what the student needs and use differentiated, engaging, and effective strategies to facilitate reaching mastery levels.
Teacher of the year in 2007 Featured Homeschool Tpt Store 2014
I graduated North Georgia College and State University with a dual major in Early Childhood Education and Special Education as well as a Reading Endorsement. I graduated Piedmont college with both my Masters and Specialists degrees in Curriculum and Design.
My passion is teaching, my family, and traveling to interesting places. I was a traditional classroom teacher for 9 years and loved every minute of it. I now homeschool my two children while traveling the country. We call it Roadschooling! We love the field trips traveling in our RV allows us to experience. We call our RV our Learning Wagon. I'm excited about sharing all the great resources and ideas that I have created over the years. I believe that collaboration and sharing build a community of effective teachers.
