B.A. Early Childhood Education (birth-3rd) — University of Tennessee of Chattanooga
M.A. Supervision and Instruction — Lincoln Memorial University
I believe that every child is special and unique. Each child has personality traits and cognitive ideas that make a classroom a special, dynamic place. It is my job as a teacher to take children’s interests, thoughts and ideas to then inspire them to dig deeper for reasoning, questions, and answers. I do this by having a personal relationship with my students, creating a confortable/positive learning environment, and by continuing my own individual pedagogical formation.

Learning is a natural process that is nurtured in a loving, safe environment. I believe children need to be marinated in good literature. They need to be read to, read with and read by themselves. Reading and writing need to be integrated into all subjects with rich, hands-on activities.
