Professional: I graduated from Sweet Briar College with a Bachelors
degree in Elementary Education K-6th grades and Dance
Education K-12th grade in May 2005. I began my teaching
career at Kenston Forest School. There I taught subjects in
5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades. I worked the 2009-2010 school
year teaching 4th grade at Blackstone Primary and have
spent the past four years at Nottoway Intermediate School.
As I enter my ninth year of teaching, I look forward to
another exciting year in 6th Grade History and with the
NIS family. Personal: I was born and raised in Amelia County, where I currently
reside with my husband Dustin. We married in 2007 and
have two amazing daughters;Emory (4) and Masyn (7 mos.)
I teach dance in the evenings at Joy's School of Dance in
Amelia focusing in Jazz, Modern, Tap and Ballet Genres. I
have a Catahoula dog, Jax. I enjoy reading, watching
movies, and hanging out with my family and friends.
Mission For The Class: My mission is to allow an opportunity for all students to
excel in my classroom. It is my belief that students should
have an educational atmosphere that is fun and interactive.
Students should apply classroom knowledge to real world
experiences. It is important to meet varying learning styles,
therefore many different approaches to learning will be
used. Students must be able to compete in a technology
driven world and in the classroom they will be exposed to
the latest "cool" tech tools of education.
