About me

This will be my fourth year teaching at Blue Ridge Elementary. I began as a 5th grade teacher and moved to 4th grade the following year. I started teaching a few years after a trip to Tanzania, Africa where I worked in a school and helped at a local orphanage. I fell in love with the children and their excitement for knowledge. My bachelor's degree is in Sociology from Georgia College, and I obtained my Masters in Teaching from Augusta University. I just completed my Gifted Endorsement last year, and enjoy adapting my teaching approach to the strategies I have learned. In my free time, I enjoy cycling and cooking. I always said if I wasn't a teacher, I would be a chef and travel the world. I am excited about meeting the students this year and look forward to being a part of their future success.

Class Overview

In my classroom, students will be learning the English Language Arts as well as the Social Studies curriculum. Each week, we focus on learning a few concepts outlined in the Georgia Standards of Excellence and will build on them as the year progresses. I understand that past couple of years took an unexpected turn, and will work my hardest to get the students where they need to be by the end of 4th grade.

Did your student forget to bring home their book or newspaper? No worries! Students will need to log into Classlink through the school website, and use the tab titled "HMH Ed" to access their ELA material and Studies Weekly to access Social Studies material.
