    I am excited for the 2018-2019 school year!!

    Educational Background and Qualifications:

    This is my 5th year teaching at Southside Elementary School. I graduated Suma Cum Laude from Grand Canyon University with a Bachelors of Science in Education with an Emphasis in Mathematics. I am currently certified with the state of Georgia in Early Childhood Education, Middle Grades Mathematics, Middle Grades Social Studies, and Middle Grades English/Language Arts. I also just completed my Master's Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in both Reading and Mathematics. 

    Looking ahead to this year:

    • Muliplication 
    • Division
    • Fractions
    • Decimals

    Math homework will be given Monday-Thursday. This will include a worksheet and completion of writing multiplicaiton facts to increase math fluency.

    We will be completing several projects for Social Stuides this year, which will be completed in class but may require some work from home. 

    Any parent conference must be scheduled in advance and may be held during our planning time, which  is 1:15-2:00, or after school from 3:30-4:00. Feel free to call, email, or send a note for any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. 

    Please sign up for Class Dojo. This is an essential form of communication and allows you to monitor your child's conduct. 

    I am available for after school tutoring on Tuesdays from 3:30 - 4:00 pm. All students MUST be picked up at 4:00 by their parent. School buses will not provide transportation.  

    I look forward to a wonderful and exciting year with your students!
