Subjects Taught
1st Grade

Education

My credentials include a Bachelor’s Degree from Covenant College, in Elementary Education. I received a Master’s Degree from University of Phoenix online.

I am very excited for this year to begin and to work with your children. I love to teach reading and writing, so your child will be spending much time with those two subjects. You will be amazed at the progress you will see in your child’s reading skills in this first grade year. I cannot wait to get to know each one of them.



Experience

Upon graduating from college I traveled to the country of Honduras to teach 1st grade. When I returned from Honduras I began teaching Pre-K in Georgia for 3 years. I began working on my Masters Degree at that point.

In 2006 I found a place at McBrien Elementary School teaching Kindergarten. The very next year I came to the Spring Creek family to teach first grade and have been teaching first grade since then.

I love teaching first grade and teaching kids to read. The look on their faces when they understand how to figure out the word themselves has been the greatest reward in teaching.

 



Bio

I grew up in Ringgold GA playing many sports all through high school. Basketball being my favorite. I still try to play when I get the chance. I then moved to Lookout Mountain to play basketball for Covenant College.

After a few years of teaching and traveling the world I met my husband once I found my Spring Creek family in 2007. We married in 2008 and have had 3 kids since.

My husband is a part-time pastor at our church and we spend lots of our time at our church enjoying our ministry there.

Both of our families are here and we spend much time with both of our families enjoying sporting events, birthdays, church, and eating.
