Hello! Thank you for visiting my webpage! I have been teaching for 8 years in various schools, and I am happiest right where I am at Christ the King. I got my undergraduate degree from UK (GO CATS!) and my Masters Degree in Education from Milligan Christian College in Johnson City, Tennessee! I have a passion for Literature, Grammar, and helping students learn to read. I have a desire to build a great rapport with families at our school because I believe I am not the primary teacher of your children! You are! But together, we can turn out some brilliant leaders and Christ-lovers!
This year I teach 4th and 5th grade Character Education and 6th grade Language Arts! I love teaching smaller classes and I feel so blessed to teach Character Education! We do all sorts of character building activities, most recently pulling weeds around the school building! I am also the Special Needs Coordinator which means you can find me all over the building during my Special Instruction classes. I may be in my room working on beginning reading strategies or I may be collaborating with a teacher to help a student be successful in his/her classroom. I also work with students on "social skills" ranging from "how to be a good friend" to "what to do when I get angry." I am constantly reminded what a great education I got at Milligan where I focused on Special Education. I believe God put me at a Christian college to help prepare me for my career at CTK! I apply strategies and concepts from my Master's program on an hourly basis!
My daily schedule is as follows:
1st period: Planning period
2nd/3rd period: 6th grade Language Arts
4th period: Small group instruction time
5th period: 5th grade Character Ed
6th period: 4th grade Character Ed
7th period: Small group instruction time
8th period: Small group instruction time
Feel free to contact me at any time!
