I have been teaching 5th grade for 9 years. I hold a BS and a Masters in Early Childhood Education. My Ed.S. is in Teacher Leadership for Learning. I am currently in the research phase of my dissertation in Early Childhood Education. My dissertation is focused on portfolio assessment with student self reflection.
In 2011, I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Early Childhood Education. While I was a student, I married my high school sweetheart, and had my daughter. After graduating, I worked in first grade and Pre-k, and had my son. I currently am a volunteer at the Georgia Aquarium and love every minute of it. I have always loved to learn, and I hope I can pass on that thirst for knowledge to my students. I look forward to this next school year.
After earning my undergrad degree in accounting, I worked for the local "telephone company" for 19 years in their newly emerging IT department. After our 3 daughters were settled in college, I went back to school myself to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming an elementary school teacher. The 2014-15 school year will be my first year teaching! I am excited to be able to combine my love of computer technology with teaching 5th graders.
