Here is a little about myself:

This is my seventh year at Harrison and my 26th year in Cobb County. (Time flies when you are having fun!!) I taught elementary school for 19 years, PE at Harrison, and now I am teaching Early Childhood Education classes. I also coach JV soccer at Harrison. I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity. I love what I do and want to inspire Harrison’s students to work hard, learn much and make a difference in the world.

On a personal note, My husband, Chris Tanner, and I and have two “kids”. My daughter, Audrey, graduated from Harrison in 2015 and  is attending the University of North Alabama to play soccer. My son, Andrew, graduated for Emmanuel College where he received a degree in Sports Management. He recently married Ashley Thor Tanner and is now employed at my alma mater, Kennesaw State University. We are a big soccer family and love the outdoors: fishing, kayaking, hiking…

Exam/Reflection– 20% of you grade (final exam) (NO LATE WORK ACCEPTED): Due on/before deadline. You report to your school on our exam days for their celebrations. I am happy to edit/review your work prior to the due date.

Focus on one to three students during the semester. Your final exam will be a reflection, writing about your teaching relationship with this one student or this small group of students.

Consider:

  • Your daily activities
  • The student struggles and accomplishments
  • Particular lesson(s) or activity with which you helped the student(s)
  • How you helped facilitate the lesson or activity
  • Teacher instructional strategies: small groups, collaboration, cooperative groups, etc.
  • Your use of technology with the student(s)
  • Did the student(s) find success with the lesson? How do you know?
  • Additional comments, reflections
