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 10th year teaching at Van Wert Elementary. 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 the assistant principal at Rockmart Middle School. We have three children, Max (5), Anna (3), and Presley (2). Max will attend kindergarten this fall 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
