Welcome to fourth grade ELA! I have been teaching for twelve years. I have taught eleven out of the twelve years with Polk School District. I am married to Ryan Evans, and we have two children, Faith and Brock. Faith is twelve, and Brock is seven! I graduated from Pepperell High School in 2002, Floyd College with an Associate's Degree in 2004, and the University of West Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education in 2006. I continued my education with Walden University to earn my Master of Science in Reading and Literacy in 2006. Following that, I continued a higher education and received my Specialist of Education in Reading and Literacy in 2009. I love learning, and I hope my students do the same! Our class is student-centered with many project-based and collaborative lessons focused on the ELA Georgia Standards of Excellence!
