I am originally from Glasgow, KY. I attended the University at Kentucky (GO CATS) to pursue my degree in Elementary Education. I graduated from UK in December 2011 and I began working at SCES in Fall 2012. This will be my seventh year teaching at SCES! I received my Master's degree from the University of the Cumberlands as a Literacy Specialist in Fall 2016. Literacy is my passion and I love sharing my love of reading with my students.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter at Lake Cumberland. I have a beautiful 7 month old daughter, Mary Kathryn. I also enjoy playing with my three cats, T.T. , Skippy, and Angel (you'll get to know them better this school year) and reading. I also enjoy traveling and I love sharing my adventures with my students.
Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies not
only in abilities, but also in their learning styles. My role as a teacher is to
give children the tools with which they can cultivate their own knowledge.
To accomplish this goal, I will teach to the needs of each child so that all
learners can feel capable and successful in the classroom. I will present
curriculum that involves the interests of the children and makes learning
relevant to life. I will incorporate themes, integrated units, projects,
group work, individual work, and hands-on learning in order to make children
active learners. Finally, I will tie learning into the world community to
help children become caring and active members of society.
