Education

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of West Georgia in Dec. 2001. In 2008, I completed my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of West Georgia. I also received my reading endorsement when I graduated with my Master's Degree in 2008. I won Teacher of the Year in 2008 and was so excited. It was such an honor to be recognized! I also was the runner up at the County Level for Teacher of the Year as well. I have been very blessed as a teacher and look forward to many more accomplishments in the years to follow.

I have additional training in Animated Literacy, Thinking Maps, Six Traits of Writing, Running Recorders, Guided Reading, Saxon Phonics, Eureka Math and Leadership. 

I was a member of the SCE Leadership Team for eight years and have learned so much about data and how to use that data to drive instruction. I also learned how to set goals and monitor those goals. It was an amazing learning experience. I use this experience and knowledge in my class still today to guide my teaching and to help my students be successful.



Experience

After completing my Bachelor Degree in 2001, I began teaching at Sharp Creek Elementary. I have experience in first grade and kindergarten. This is my 15th year of teaching and I absolutely love it! I have spent 13 years in kindergarten and that is where my heart lies. I love watching children learn to read, write, and develop a love for learning at the same time as have FUN! 



Bio

I have been married for ten years to a wonderful man named Mark. Mark works for the City of Carrollton. We have one child, Ethan, who is seven years old. He is currently in Mrs. Kings' 2nd Classroom at SCE and we are super proud of him. Ethan loves playing baseball and is on the 7-8 team for Carroll County Rec. We spend a lot of time at the ball field which we love especially in the fall and spring time. We have two puppies, Marley and Mumford. They are boxer mix pupies and are currently 4 months old. We love to spend time together reading, riding bikes, going on adventures, playing, and most of all laughing.
