My husband Carl and I moved to Thomasville, Georgia in 2017. I have two daughters, Tia (25) and Breanne (22) and Carl has three children, Dean (31), Kyle(29), and Kaylen(27).
I enjoy traveling, eating and going to the beach!
I am truly excited to teach your children this year! My goal as a Kindergarten teacher is to create a caring community of learners who love to be at school. I will encourage discovery and self-directed exploration so that the children are engaged and excited about learning. Immersion in literature, cultivating creativity, respect of diversity, and freedom to explore help develop lifelong learners. You will be amazed at how much your children will learn this year and I am looking forward to having a fantastic year!
