I have taught Kinders for 7 years and spent 1 year in 2nd grade. My heart is with Kindergarten! I LOVE to teach the Kinders!
I am a teacher that only uses those true and tried lessons from year to year that create growth and expand on my students abilities. I am a crafty, active, interactive, and hands on type of teacher. I view my students as my other 20 plus children. They know me as their school mama and I wouldn't want it any other way! I LOVE to get students and families excited about learning and exploring all that they can and do in Kindergarten.
Currently I am the grade level chair and one of six teacher leaders for the school. I have gone before the school board for our county and helped to bring a phonics and phonological awareness program to our county.
I graduated from Elon University in 2006 with a major in Elementary Education, and a minor in History and Psychology. I plan to go back and start my Masters within the next 2 to 3 years.
I am married to my college sweet heart. We are lucky to have a beagle named Buckley, and two of the sweet little girls! Our girls are 1 day under a year apart! I am a huge football fan, crafter, mama and wife! I am a true all year teacher! I am always doing research, creating, or something for my students or school!
