Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 2019-2020 school year at Hains Elementary!
I have been teaching for over 20 years and this is my 7th year
at Hains. I am delighted to have your child in my class this year.
I am dedicated to providing a safe and cooperative learning
environment that allows all students to grow academically and
personally. With your encouragement, your child will be part of
many exciting and rewarding experiences this academic year.
My classroom is a work oriented environment where students are
freely able to communicate their ideas. They will receive strong
guidance when necessary but my overall goal is to build students'
critical thinking skills. This will help students to become independent
learners and be able to do well on the Georgia Milestones Test.
I feel that developing a safe, orderly and nurturing environment is the
responsibility of all classroom participants. Therefore, I have high
expectations for myself and have high expectations for my students.
I have no doubt that with hard work, patience, and your support
we can all succeed this year, learn from one another and have fun
in the process.
I am looking forward to a year of exploration, discovery, and learning.
My Planning time is 10:30-11:15
