Most of my teaching experience has been in Pre-Kindergarten, where I learned how to enjoy teaching and bring that enjoyment to my students each and every day. Now, I'm teaching second grade and loving the independence and challenge they bring to the table.
I enjoy incorporating hands-on activities, musical twists, whole-brain movement, fascinating science, and other engaging methods to get all of my students involved in learning.

Much of my free time is spent volunteering in the music ministry of my church, singing with "Broken Chains" - a contemporary Christian Band based at St. Jude Catholic Church - Bossier, and researching my family history. Otherwise, I'm spending every waking moment thinking of new ways to engage my students.
