Academic learning must begin with motivation and inspiration. Students deserve an educator’s passion for both the subject at hand and learning as a whole. Teaching and learning become a simultaneous journey for both the teacher and students when students’ energy is aroused by a teacher’s genuine intensity for learning, because everyone is ready and willing to participate in active learning.
To achieve active learning, a teacher must demonstrate enthusiasm and express confidence in the students’ abilities to learn and be successful.
I attended Tennessee Technological University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Physical Education. I am currently certified to teach in the state of Tennessee.
I have been teaching in the classroom since 2002.
I have participated in a number of extracurricular activities over the years. I have been involved in indoor and outdoor track, cross country, cheerleading, and online health. I am involved in the School Health Index Committee, work with the TSA group, and attend all after school basketball games.
