4th grade teacher
Although we have technology in the form of computers a mobile lab, and several document projectors, we need to use Smart Boards in EACH classroom including the Techno-Plaza and science labs.
My Philosophy:
My philosophy of education is that children come to school with some knowledge base. Through teaching content and with positive guidance, I will challenge my students to take risks to explore and add to their knowledge plus gain respect for themselves and others.

About Me:
My interest in teaching began while I was the director of a special needs, Easter Seal, preschool program in 1989. After it closed I had my daughter and became an at home mom for about 5 years. Soon after she enrolled in school, I started teaching preschool and did so for almost 6 years. I then realized that I would like to teach older children, so I returned to college to get my teaching license and Masters. In total I have been teaching 11 years private and 7 public.
College and Degrees:
M. Ed. University of Tennessee at Chattanooga B.A Memphis State University
Busy, busy, busy....I love to cook, read, go to movies, the ballet, travel, but most of this has to be done during the summer when I am not grading papers:)
