Hi there! This is my 22nd year in the Lowndes County School System. Most of my years have been spent working with kids who have learning needs of one kind or another. I spent 4 years as a special education coordinator where I worked with teachers and administrators at different schools within our school system. What can I say, though? I LOVE working with the children, so I returned to the classroom about 10 years ago, and I haven't looked back! I always say, "Kids are more fun than grown-ups!"
My goal as an educator at HES is to help the kids who struggle to be the most successful 4th graders they can be! Some of our day is spent in the regular classroom, and some of our day is spent in my resource classroom in a small group. I plan with regular education teachers every week to be sure I'm providing grade level instructional opportunities and preparing them to be successful with grade level curriculum. Mr. Hodge is our supplemental aid. He helps me take care of these kiddos! While I'm in one place with a group, he's in another place with the rest of the kids. We make a great team!
