 All About Me-I attended the Somerset School System from 1st grade until I graduated in 1979. After graduation I attended Eastern Kentucky University and graduated with a BS in elementary education with a kindergarten endorsement in 1983. Upon graduation from EKU I stayed and completed my Master’s which is in Gifted Education in 1984. I completed my Rank 1 from EKU after I started teaching in the Somerset School System in 1984. My Rank 1 is in General Elementary Education. I am certified to teach K-8 and gifted K-12.
Classroom rules-1. Listen and follow directions
                  2. Follow directions for talking in class-raise your hand and wait to be called on to answer.
                  3. Control yourself-keep hands, feet and objects to yourself.
                  4.Be kind-no teasing.

I have a wonderful assistant Joanne Rogers. She has been with me for many years. She is a very kind and child oriented person.  I am grateful to have her with me.
Teaching philosophy
I believe that all children can learn but not all children learn the same way. If you teach using all different learning styles, then you will reach each child’s ability to learn. Each child needs to learn how to cherish their ability to learn to learn to the best of their ability.
