This is my second year as a 7th grade Gifted/Social Studies teacher. It’s been a wonderful experience and I’m so pleased to be a part of the Foley community.
I am originally from Monroeville, Alabama. I graduated from Monroe County High School in 2005. I completed my Bachelors Degree in Secondary Education Social Studies at the University of Alabama in 2009. I completed my Masters Degree in Gifted Education in May 2014, also from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!).
Through working with social studies and gifted classes I have experience teaching in all grade levels K-12. At FMS, I am one of the 7th grade social studies teachers and I’m also responsible for the 7th grade gifted classes. First semester we study Civics, and after Christmas break we swap and study Geography. In each class, I like to place a lot of emphasis on current events as they relate to my subject. I’m also one of the sponsors for the Foley Middle School Scholars Bowl team.
My Moodle page has all of my class notes and most of my assignments posted on it. I also frequently post reminders and information about tests on my Moodle page. I do use the Remind 101 text alerts to send out reminders to students. Any student or parent interested in signing up can come see me or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
