This is my 7th year teaching: -2 years in 2nd grade -1 year in 1st grade -2 years in 5th grade -2 years as a K/1 Interventionist
I try to make things as interactive and engaging as possible! I love implementing technology into every lesson. I use a lot of Kagan Cooperative Learning Strategies in my classroom which help the students become more involved in their learning.
I have been Common Core trained in Reading/Language Arts. I have also been a part of the Tennessee Board of Regents Close Reading Grant which was an incredible learning experience!
I graduated from Lipscomb University in May 2012 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-6). I graduated from Lipscomb University in May 2016 with my M.Ed in Reading Specialty with an Administrative License.
I love creating things for my classroom whether it is on the computer or crafting something. I am a devoted Christian and try to live that out in the classroom as much as possible. I love teaching and hope to be doing it for many years to come!
