My Education and Professional Background
Graduated from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. I have a Bachelors of Science/Education and Special education endorsed. I was a teacher assistant for 16 years and have taught 15 years, K through 4 grades.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.
