  • My Story

    I always knew I was called to be a teacher, but my educational path has taken different directions over the course of my career. I began teaching in a self-contained Special Education classroom, and after a marriage and move across the state, found myself in a First Grade classroom. This led to my love of early literacy, and it was during this time I completed my Master’s of Education and Education Specialist degree in Literacy. This degree allowed me to move into an Instructional/Literacy Coaching role, which evolved into data specialist, testing coordinator, and leading teachers in professional development. This unlocked a new love- sharing my love of learning with others. I obtained my Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction during this time, and the Lord opened the door to higher education. I truly feel I am fulfilling my purpose guiding future educators and helping them grow in their love of teaching!

    Favorite Course to Teach:

    I love teaching any courses regarding early literacy- there is so much to learn, and research is constantly evolving, so content is always new, exciting, and relevant!
