I have been in public education for over 20 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Leadership, both from Mississippi State University. I have a GT certification as well as the ESL endorsement on my teaching license and a TESOL certification also for ESL. I began my career as a 2nd grade teacher then taught 1st grade for about 9 years. After that I became an Assistant Principal. After 6 years in Administration, my husband's job transferred us to Texas. At that point I decided to go back into the classroom because I had missed being with the students in that setting. I taught 1st grade for 4 more years and then asked to move up to 3rd grade where I taught reading, writing, and social studies for 2 years.
Because of some medical issues I decided to stay home rather than go back to the public school but I have continued to tutor students. I am so excited to continue my teaching career with online teaching! I have so many great lessons that I have taught and I am eager to share them with new students. My number one love is teaching reading.
For my lessons, I will focus on teaching various reading skills, phonics instruction, and character education but I will be offering some early math lessons as well.
In my spare time I enjoy making shirts, decals, and other fun things with vinyl! My family enjoys having animals. Since living in Texas, we have had 7 dogs, 3 pigs, a donkey, a buffalo, a hamster, many cows, turkeys, and chickens!
