Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 6th grade! I am so excited for our new school year. I have so many fun and exciting things planned.
I came to Bell Academy in November of 2015 to be the Science Lab specialist. This will be my first year in the regular classroom, and I am so excited to get started. I will be teaching Math, Science, and Health.
I was born and raised in the Delta, and unlike others, I love it! I moved to Cleveland 4 1/2 years ago while attending Delta State University, where I obtained my Bachelors in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my Masters in Elementary Education (Graduate: Spring 2017.) I have been married for 16 years to my husband, Richard. We have two daughters, Lauren and Mary Kate. Oh, we also have two dogs!!
It is my desire to share my love of learning with your child in the hopes of them becoming life-long learners. I am passionate about encouraging each one of my students that they CAN and WILL learn!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns or questions!
Here's to a great year!
I was born in Mississippi, but consider myself blessed because I have lived in six different states and I can say without a doubt I love the South and our state. I graduated from high school in Foley, Alabama in 1988. I graduated from Delta State in 1996 and 1998 with a BSE and an MED in Elementary Education. I have been employed with the Cleveland School District for 21 years. I have taught English/Language Arts for 16 of those years. I have taught grades 4th, 7th, and 8th prior to teaching 6th grade for the second year. I am married to Ric and we have no children (well we do have 7 furry little children). I believe that in a classroom children must have fun while they are learning. I also believe that learning must have purpose in order to be effective. I am a big proponent of reading and I writing and hope to pass that love on to your children. I am a member of FBCC where I am actively engaged with our children's ministry. For fun I like to read and have coffee with my friends.
