I believe that all children have the ability to learn and have the right to an education in a positive, nurturing environment. Using a variety of learning strategies and hands on experiences is essential to student success. It is my goal to give students the tools to become successful academically and continue that success into everyday life.
I attended Methodist University from the fall of 2003 until the spring of 2009, when I graduated with a Bachelor of Science. I majored in elementary education. This career path gave me the opportunity to have field experiences in first, second, and fifth grades. I also student taught in the fifth grade.
During college, I completed field experiences in a first grade classroom, second grade classroom, and fifth grade classroom. I also student taught at the fifth grade level. Today, I am a substitute teacher within the public school system and have been in both elementary and high school classrooms. I have also done one-on-one in person tutoring.
I attend a Southern Baptist church. I’m active in the children’s ministry where I am an AWANA leader. I’m also active in the youth ministry, where I was a chaperon for their trip to student life camp this summer.
