I have juggled many hats in the education arena the past 25 years. Currently, I am teaching Kindergarten and one of the Grade Level Chairs. Also, I work closely with first year and new teachers at my school as a Teacher Support Specialist. I am also a Chess Club Sponsor and a Georgia School Master Gardener. I have had responsibilities as a Literacy Coach, Reading Specialist, Gifted & Talented Coordinator, Writing Assessment Coach, Junior Great Books Leader, Parent Involvement Coordinator, Character Counts Coordinator, Multiculture Curriculum Coordinator,Young Authors' Club Sponsor, Beta Club Sponsor, Staff Development Coordinator, School Newspaper Sponsor, and a host of other Teacher Leader Responsibilities. I Love to Teach! But: Most of all, I Love To Learn. Lifelong Learning is what I hope each child takes from Kindergarten. "Everything You Need To Know, You Learn in Kindergarten."
