Welcome to 8th grade science at Payne Junior High! I am thrilled to be a part of a great school and community!

My Education and Professional Background

I have a Middle Grades Education degree in Science and Math for grades 5-9 from Kennesaw State University in Georgia. I have been teaching since 2001 which includes ESL in Argentina, 7th grade math and science in Virginia, 3rd - 8th grade science and math in various years. I have my gifted certification from Georgia

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that a classroom that promotes kindness, respect and team work will facilitate life-long learners. I believe that every child is capable of success and that a key part of that is learning to rise above failures. Each child deserves to be given the tools to expand their learning. It is my goal to provide the very best instruction, engaging activities, and challenging opportunities, all in a safe and positive classroom environment
