Hi! Welcome to my teacher webpage. I am looking forward to an exciting year together!
This is my 9th year teaching 2nd grade and my 5th year at FES. I taught for 4 years in Pensacola, Florida.
I graduated from the University of South Alabama in Elementary Education.
I have two boys, Dylan (14) and Brayden (10).
I love spending time with my friends and family and doing anything outdoors!
I have a family full of teachers!
My teaching philosophy:
"The work can wait while you show the child a rainbow but the rainbow will not wait for you to finish the work."
There are many learning opportunities throughout the day. Some of them aren't always planned but they can certainly be missed if we aren't careful. I enjoy taking those "teachable moments" and using them as rich, learning opportunities. I believe that learning should be active, engaging and meaningful. There are so many different ways that children learn best and I try to teach in a way that will reach children of all learning styles and backgrounds. I take pride in creating a classroom atmosphere where children feel comfortable, safe and happy.
I look forward to a wonderful year with your child!
