Welcome to 5th grade! I earned my B.S. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from UAB. In addition, I earned my National Board Certification in the area of Literacy. This is my 9th year in the classroom. I have taught in Title I and non-Title I schools, with experience in third, fourth, and fifth grades. I have to admit that fifth grade is by far my favorite! This is an exciting time in a child's life. They are preparing for their last year of elementary school and learning to become more independent. With that said, it is easier to implement independent, project-based learning experiences.
In my classroom, I strive to promote leadership, critical thinking, and independence. These core characteristics will enable students to succeed in middle, high, and post-secondary school.
In my spare time, I am a mom, wife, sister, and friend. I enjoy music, arts, and crafts.
