I am so glad to have the opportunity to teach you all about 2nd grade. This is an exciting year in your education! We will have a lot of hands-on learning with Study Buddies and Study Groups. We are off to a great start already.
This will make my 10th year as an elementary teacher. I have taught 1st-4th grades and this year had the opportunity to move back to 2nd grade... This is my favorite! I have a love for this age and can't wait to dig in. Teaching is not just my job, it's my passion. I have been married for over 12 years and have four of my own children at home, ages 14, 5, 3, and 9 months. We are always doing something to help them learn, too. My students at school are my children for the 180 days I spend with them.
I graduated from Cumberland University in Lebanon, TN in 1997. My family moved here after I graduated and loved it, so we stayed to make it our home. I am a member of the Smyrna Church of Christ where I also teach Bible class to the children 5 and under. My hobbies, when I have time, are gardening, sewing, crafts, reading, and shopping for a bargain or treasure at yard sales and thrift stores. My favorite junk food is ice cream! I'm also kind of a "health nut", but am allergic to nuts of all sorts! My "pet Peeves" are whining, laziness, and rudeness.
