I have been a Seven Oaks OWL for the past 5 years and have made it my home. I have taught in both 4th and 5th grade and really enjoy working with this particular age group. This year I am entering year 15 of my teaching career. Education and working with students truly is my passion and what I have always wanted to do. I strive to not only teach my students the academic skills they need for success but the social skills as well. I also love to learn myself and currently have a Master's degree in Curriculum Instruction and Planning in Reading and am National Board certified in Early and Middle Childhood Literacy. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, looking up fun activities to try with my students on teacher blogs and pinterest, playing with my fur baby biscuit, and of course cheering on my Clemson Tigers. My philosophy of classroom management is to remember to treat my students the way I would want my own children treated. I also believe very strongly in communication between students, parents, and myself and view us as a collaborative team with the same goal; to prepare our children for whatever the future holds for them and to make them educated citizens who are leaders and have good character.
