I have taught for 11 years. I worked in First Grade for 7 wonderful years and am currently teaching ELA in Fabulous 5th Grade! Ready to kick off year 12!
I am a Whole Brain and Kagan lover. I am a drinker of Diet Coke. I am a firm believer in Reading EVERY DAY. I am organized. I am very prepared for every lesson. I am the fun but structured teacher. I am very into my routine. I am lost without my technology. I am loved by my kids. I am the teacher who calls all former students "my kids"- because they are!
Calhoun County Teacher of the Year 2015 Recipient of Governor Rick Scott's Shine Award for Educators 2015
I received my AA from Chipola College in 2003. I went on to Florida State University to obtain my BS in Elementary Education (ESOL certified, Reading Endorsed). Once again, I went to FSU to receive my Masters in Elementary Education. Go Noles!
Life really is sweet when you are the Queen Bee of a 5th Grade ELA classroom!
