· This is my eleventh year teaching Kindergarten at East Elementary and I am very excited about being here. This school is just like a family to me. We all work together to guide each child to success.
· I did my schooling at William Woods University receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood. I furthered my education by getting my Master’s Degree in Elementary Administration. I graduated December 2012.
· Why I choose to be a teacher occurred when I was doing work study at the Fulton Preschool. I loved being able to walk into smiling faces and hugs everyday. Then seeing over time how much each child had grown through the year intrigued me. I chose the younger ages because they are so willing and wanting to learn. They make each day special for me. I want to know I have made a difference in somebody’s life and teaching is where I am able to do that.· My hobbies are softball, any outdoor activities, and spending time with my husband, Craig, step-son, Cohen, and son, Peyton.
