About Me



I am currently in my 19th year of teaching.  I have been a 3rd grade classroom teacher and currently a technology integration specialist at The Children's School in Atlanta, GA.This blog is a reflection of lessons learned in and about life both personally and professionally.



Philosophy of Education:

My philosophy of education is to provide students with the opportunity to be involved in their education by providing real-world experiences through authentic curriculum design. I believe it is important for students to become open-minded and respectful individuals who give back locally and globally.

I believe that differentiation is important for learning and learning styles. I understand that students learn best when given academic choices in an environment that is most comfortable for them. It has been my goal throughout my career to create a learning environment where learning is fun and enjoyable, as well as create an open, caring classroom for students, parents, teachers, and staff.

Throughout my career, I consistently participate in professional development. As an educator, I believe that it is so important to learn and grow both personally and professionally. In addition, during my summer breaks I enjoy traveling to developing countries to do service work, thus modeling to my students the importance of giving back. Teaching and traveling has been a way for me to express my creativity, learn about different cultures, and make a difference in society.
