About Me

I have taught for almost seventeen years in various elementary classroom positions across McDowell County. I also taught in Hampshire County for a year as a 2nd grade classroom teacher.  I am currently the Resource Teacher for Kimball Elementary.  I teach art, internet safety lessons, and Common Sense Media to K-5 students. 

 It is truly a wonderful experience to work with the students here at Kimball!  Kimball is a wonderful school with a tremendous principal and staff who truly desires to do what’s best for kids.

  My heart’s desire as a Resource Teacher is to make a real difference in our world by influencing the greatest resource of any nation which is the students.

My philosophy as an educator can easily be summed up by Henry Brooks Adams.  According to him, “Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell where their influence stops.”

 

Degree/specializations

I attended Bluefield State College for my Elementary Education (K-8).  I have a specialization in Reading through Marshall University.
