Experience

This is my ninth year teaching kindergarten at Madison Elementary.  In addition to kindergarten, I have also taught first and second grade, and I am certified to teach Kindergarten through sixth grade in Alabama. 

 

 

My class has been awarded both Model and Master Classroom from Renaissance Learning for the past three years. 

I believe strongly in the importance of the writing connection when teaching reading and pre-reading skills.  We typically have a class pet (tree frog) to help inspire student writing and research. 

While teaching second grade,  our class wrote and illustrated a book that was a Finalist in the National Learning National Book Challenge.  

I  have received training with the Alabama Reading Initiative and the Alabama Math Science and Technology Institute, and  I am highly qualified under the No Child Left Behind legislation.

 



Bio

I love teaching kindergarten, and watching the amazing development and growth children make during this exciting time in their lives.

After graduating from Texas A&M University,  my husband Kirk and I moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico where our daughter Lee was born, and where we lived for three years.  Lee graduated Magnacum Laude with a degree in Spanish and Psychology from the University of Alabama in Birmingham this year, and has been accepted into the Occupational Therapy Program at UAB. 

From New Mexico we moved to Fort Collins, Colorado where our son Austin was born.  Austin has recently joined The National Guard, and is a sophomore in college.

Although we really enjoyed our eight years in Colorado, we were very happy to return to our southern roots twelve years ago when we moved to Madison. I enjoy reading, studying Spanish, traveling and nature.

I look forward to another exciting year in kindergarten!
