Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am truly excited about the year. I believe it will be the best year yet.
As Robert John Meehan said, "Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding." Every child IS different and special. I believe all students can learn and be successful if they are provided with an environment conducive to their needs. I feel they need to be provided with challenging experiences that push them to be more responsible for their learning. Furthermore, I believe students need love and room to grow and expand. They need to have a place where they can feel safe to be themselves and learn from mistakes without the fear of failure looming overhead. Most of all, kids need an opportunity to be just kids.
I graduated from the University of West Georgia with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. This is my eleventh year of teaching with ten of those years being served within Polk School District. I teach Special Education Reading and Language Arts in an inclusion setting.
I have been married to Tony for 19 years. We have three wonderful children named Alexis (17), Megan (13), and Isaac (11). My husband and I both grew up in Bartow County. However, our home is now in Rockmart. I enjoy riding four wheelers, playing music, watching my children play sports, and traveling.
