I've taught kindergarten and first grade as well as spent time being a state literacy coach. Now I am headed back to the classroom as a first time 5th grade teacher.
I believe my teaching style is well-rounded. I believe any great classroom should include multiple styles of teaching. My objective is to do whatever it takes to meet the needs of my students.
I graduated with honors from the University of Southern Mississippi. I received Teacher of the Year on the school and district level my third year teaching.
I have a BS degree in Marketing and worked in retail for almost a decade. As my children became older and I became more involved in their activities, I felt led to return to school. I received my BS in Elementary Education and Master of Education in C&I in Reading and Literacy, and I feel like I have finally found my fit. I am passionate about my job, and I cannot see myself doing anything else.
I am the mom of teenage twins boys whom I adore. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 22 years.
