Education

In 1981, I received a Bachelor of Education in Outdoor Resource and Management from Columbus State University, in Columbus, Georgia. In 1989, I attended Kennesaw State University and received my teaching certification in 1991.  Then in 2001, I received my Masters of Education in Early Childhood from Georgia Southwestern University, and furthered my education by receiving my Educational Specialist degree from the same school in 2005.



Experience

I have been a teacher at Crawford County Elementary from 1997 to present. I taught third grade for 18 years. I am presently in my first year teaching second grade.  



Bio

 

I was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. In 1983,  I married my husband, then we moved to live in the suburbs of Atlanta.  We lived there for 14 years while he worked at Dobbins Air Force Base. In the summer of 1997, he was transferred to Robins Air Force Base, and we moved to live in Musella in Crawford County.

We have no children; therefore, our pets are like our children. At the present time, we have 2 cats. My hobbies are reading, singing in my church choir, and shopping. 

Someone once asked me if I could have any job in the world, what would I want to do? I told them the only job I've ever wanted since I was in first grade was to teach. So I'm doing what I've always wanted to do.

My philosophy of education is every child has the right to learn and get a quality education.  A teacher should be aware of each child's needs in all areas, and make every effort to address these needs.  Parents are a vital aspect of a child's education, so the parents should be part of the team, along with the teacher and the student to ensure student success.  I want my students to know I want them to be successful not only at school but in other areas in their life. I try to attend sports games, dance recitals, church programs, and any other extracurricular activity in which the students are involved.
