I've been in elementary education for 16 years mainly in grades 3 and 4. I've also spent a year in a curriculum lab for grades K-5.
Since instruction time is so valuable, I find it easier to design units that integrated many subjects. I believe it connects parts and the brain and makes understanding easier.
Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce Teacher of the Year in 2010
My education includes a BA from USM and MA from William Carey University. I also became national board certified in 2010.
I've spent time researching and conducting some professional development for my school district. In the future, I hope to continue my education in curriculum.
