Bio

I am an Americus native and I received my formal education from the public school system of Americus, GA.  My hobbies include playing and coaching basketball.  I also enjoy spending time with my husband, my three children and teaching students the concepts of math.  My classroom will be a place to learn and a place to develop social skills.  It will include math, reading, and writing concepts on the walls and seating that will depend on the classroom activity at the time. There will be at least two computers in the classroom so students can complete some assignments based on the area of their needs.  My philosophy is to "try your hardest, and you will succeed at whatever you want to do." 

The goals I plan to fulfill are to become a great teacher, be a guide, supervisor of learning, a facilitator, director of learning, and a collaborative partner. I want to be a part of the learning process to help students develop morally and intellectually. Teaching is hard, but with determination I will influence students to choose the right decisions on their journey in life.  I will always strive to be a great teacher and inspire my students to learn.
