This is my 15th year as a teacher here in Cobb County and I have been here at Pitner for the past 12 years. I have taught both Kindergarten and First Grade. I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I have been married for 33 years to my best friend Mike. We have 2 grown up daughters, Sarah and Tory. Sarah, her husband Shawn, and my beautiful granddaughter Maddie live in Alabama. Tory has decided to settle closer to home and is a teacher. In my spare time I love to read, sew, and play on the computer.
I believe that all children can learn and by creating an environment where challenges are present and by guiding them in setting and reaching attainable goals they will thrive in my classroom. I believe that if I work to build a positive learning environment my students they will learn to be responsible for their actions and reactions. I will nurture my students with love and patience so that my classroom will become a safe place for students to dream big and learn lots. I believe that children need lots of hands on activities to learn and that using technology in the classroom enhances the students classroom experiences.
