I am in my third year of teaching 3rd grade, but I have had various types of experience with educating or taking care of children outside of the system. For example, I was a summer camp counselor for three years along with being a dance teacher assistant. During my college career, I was a part of a scholarship program that provided me with opportunities to work with ESOL students outside of my regular internships at Winthrop University.
I thoroughly enjoy integrating some elements of the Personalized Learning Model while teaching math and ELA. This encourages students to learn on their level, track their data, and helps teachers differentiate various lessons. Also, I like to integrate the cooperative learning model to help my students with their communication skills and small group instruction.
During my college years, I was part of the Teaching Fellows Scholarship Program as well as the Kappa Delta Pi Education Honors Society.
After high school, I attended Winthrop University to receive my Bachelor's Degree of Science in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.
Born and raised near the salty water and the breezy air of Charleston, S.C. This makes me want to teach my students more about the history and the environment that my wonderful home has to offer.
