I am originally from Powell, Ohio. I lived for the last 13 years in Greensboro, North Carolina where I have been teaching for the last 5 years. I just recently moved to Arizona and so far I am loving my new state. This will be my fifth year teaching 3rd grade and I am very excited for this school year. In my free time I love to take my dogs hiking and running and on the weekends I spend my time reading and playing tennis.
My Education and Professional Background
I attended High Point University in North Carolina and graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice. After several years of working I realized my passion lay else where and went back to school at Guilford College to obtain my Elementary Education License. The first school I taught at was Guilford Preparatory Academy, a charter school, where I taught 1st and 2nd grade. The next three years I taught at Bessemer Elementary in 2nd and 3rd grades. I am currently working on my Masters in Teaching and Learning Instructional Coaching form Clemson University.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every child can learn, no matter where they come from or their background, half the battle is believing that you can do something. I think it is important that every student becomes an independent problem solver. Life is full of problems, big and small ones, and it is important that a child can learn how to take a problem or a challenge head on. It is also important that children understand that failure is ok. We learn and grow from making mistakes and if we fail, we pick ourselves back up and try again.
