West Georgia College- Teaching certification/secondary (1998)
RESA- Douglas County Gifted certification (2010)
Employed Houston County School System (2014)
I have been teaching for 17 years- grades 6th-12th and became a Thomson Tiger in 2014. During this time I have taught every level of Language Arts- Gifted, “Regular,” ESOL, and collaborative SPED. My passion for reading and writing helps me inspire my students. In addition, I have a background in professional writing and editing for magazines, newspapers, and book publishing. My author and professional educator contacts help me give my students direct lines of communication as we read independent and class books.
Though our job as teachers is never done and many times challenging, teaching your children is why I remain in the profession. They are my “why.”
