Introduction
Thank you for visiting my online classroom. Here you will find essential information over what your child is learning.  You will also find learning tips/visual aids and videos.  Please visit frequently for up to date information.  This fall I will begin my 9th year teaching at Van Wert Elementary. This is my 4th year teaching 1st grade.  I am delighted to be a part of your child's learning experience.  Please feel free to contact me using the above information.  

I am a proud graduate of Rockmart High School (2003). I am married to Ryan who is an assistant principal at Cedartown Middle School. We have three children, Max (4), Anna (2), and Presley (1). Max attends Pre-K at Van Wert.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and being outdoors. I also enjoy baking and making soap in my spare time.

Educational Philosophy
I have always felt that the development of early literacy skills lays the foundation to many future academic achievements.  I believe education is very valuable and is something that cannot be taken away from someone.  It has always been an honor to me to be a part of someone's lifelong educational journey.  Being a teacher allows me to continue this throughout my professional career as well. 

Educational Background
2009- University of West Georgia, Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education
2011- Nova Southeastern University, Masters of Arts in Elementary Reading
