BsEd in Early Childhood Education from UGA Teacher Support Specialist Reading Endorcement
I am so excited to have your child in my class this year. Third grade is an exciting year that is filled with many new experiences. I know that you will see a lot of growth, maturity, and independence as the year progresses.
This is my fifteenth year of teaching, and my eighth year at Swain. I have taught third grade for eight years, and my other experience is in first grade. I teach ELA which includes writing and grammar. Your child will be writing narrative pieces, opinion pieces, and informational pieces. Writing has always been a love of mine, and I hope your child will love it as well.
I am married and have two children. My husband is a senior designer at Shaw, and he is also a professional artist. My daughter, Lilly, is a ninth grader at Gordon Central. She is very interested in art. My oldest daughter, Katie, is a sophomore at UGA. She is a business major with a focus in accounting.
I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with my family. We take at least one trip to Disney World each year. My favorite times are those spent with the ones I love.
I am a graduate of the University of Georgia. I graduated in 1995 with a BSEd in Early Childhood Education. I am professionally qualified to teach grades Pre-k - 5. I can teach all subject areas, but I prefer ELA and Reading.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Open communication is the key to a successful year. I am so excited about this new school year!
