Hello! Welcome to my classroom website. This is my eleventh year teaching 2nd grade at Hopkins Elementary School and it has been wonderful! I am a graduate of Midway College with a BA in Elementary Education and have an MAEd. in Reading Specialty from the University of the Cumberlands. I have been married for 35 years to a wonderful man and have two terrific children (a daughter who is a graduate of Lindsey Wilson College and is married and just had our first granddaughter) and a son who is also a recent graduate of Boyce College/Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville now working on his Masters of Divinisty in Pastoral Studies).
My philosophy of education is that all children, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or socioeconomic background deserve the best education possible. I believe that education is an interactive process where teachers facilitate learning and students are active, engaged participants.
