I have a MEd in Social Studies Education from North Georgia College and State University (Currently UNG). I currently hold a teaching certificate in 6-12 Social Studies Education, with certifications in History, Geography, Political Science, Behavioral Science, and Economics.
I am a huge fan of creativity, choice and voice, and of blended learning. Differentiation and a passion for my content drives my instruction.

I currently teach Georgia Studies (and Advanced Georgia Studies) at an award-winning Title-1 school in Hall County, Georgia. I deeply believe in differentiation, choice and voice, and to bring out the best in all learners. In one school year, I teach a gamut of learners - from non readers, non speakers, to gifted/advanced learners. I've used this spectrum to hone my differentiation skills and figure out the best way to address the needs of all my learners.
