I have been teaching since 2000, and I really enjoy being a third grade teacher at RBES. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful staff and student body! Most of my experience is in grades 3-5 in the Clarke County School District. I have a Master's Degree in Education, an elementary math teaching endorsement, and certification to teach middle grade science. I am Rescponsive Classroom trained, and I am also a certified Yoga Calm Youth Instructor. Outside of school, I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, running, and practicing yoga. Educating the "whole child" is my number one priority. I believe that social-emotional development is as important as academic growth. This is why I have, and continue to pursue training that embraces this philosophy. A classroom community of acceptance and high expectation is of utmost importance to me. I look forward to learning with your child!
