Welcome to my second grade classroom! I have been teaching at Wren Elementary School for eighteen years. I graduated from Lambuth College in my hometown of Jackson, TN. The college was purchased by the University of Memphis. I earned a degree in Business Administration (Marketing). After several years of working in the field of Human Resources and Training I decided to change my career to teaching.
I graduated from Southern Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in early/elementary education. I am certified in early childhood, elementary education and reading. I received my Masters Degree from Clemson University. I earned 30 hours above my masters in reading and language arts. I received my National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist in 2015 and 2006. I was awarded the Distinguished Teacher of Reading in 2007 at the South Carolina Reading Conference from the Foothills Reading Council. Also, I was the 2007-2008 Teacher of the Year.
I renewed and received my National Board Certification in 2015 as an Early Childhood Generalist.
I love teaching second grade and enjoy watching my second graders blossom into fluent readers and writers.
My favorite activities are home improvement activities, gardening, crafts, and making jewelry. I have one tabby cat named Ollie he is 16 years old.
