Bio

I began teaching in 1997, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to know and teach your child this year.

My husband, Randy, and I are both natives of North Alabama and are the proud parents of three daughters. 

Third grade is an exciting year, filled with new challenges and rewards.  It is a time of transition, a time to facilitate the development of academic growth, and to encourage students to assume more responsibility.

I believe the fundamental goal of teaching is to foster learning.  Learning takes place in many different circumstances and contexts, and I truly believe all students have the potential to learn.  Learning to read, allows further learning to take place in other academic areas and throughout life.
