TEACHING EXPERIENCE

First grade stole my heart in 2006. I earned my Masters degree in teaching from the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig!) and also earned my National Board Certification in 2010. I taught first grade for 10 years until making the decision to stay home for a few years with our son, Cooper. When I'm not teaching first grade, I'm busy teaching preschool Sunday School at church and working with my own preschooler at home!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that littles thrive in a rigorous curriculum when it's taught with the brain in mind! That means my classroom is full of integrated curriculum to maximize kid learning and my teaching time! :) I also love TPR (Total Physical Response), group and partner work, flexible seating options and fun and engaging activities that encourage life long learners.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

National Board Certified Teacher - 2010 Teacher of the Year (school) - 2014 District Math Leadership Team Member - 2012 to 2015

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated in 2006 from the University of Arkansas with my Masters of Arts in Teaching. My Bachelors in Elementary Education also came from the University of Arkansas.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I married to my Jr. High sweetheart in 2006. We had our first child, Cooper, in 2012, and adopted newborn twins in 2019. And through it all God was faithful! Read more about my story HERE!
