Experience and Biography:
I have been a member of the dedicated parent and teacher community within Enterprise City Schools since my children’s 2005 school year. I am proud to transfer as an Instructional Partner here at Enterprise Early Education Center. The Enterprise City School System is undeniably the best place to be! I have also taught second, fifth, and third-grade students throughout my teaching experiences, as well as serving learners K-12 as a Reading Specialist and Reading Coach. I have earned my degrees and teaching credentials at the University of Troy (2001), and M.A.Ed in ESL with The University of Alabama in Birmingham (2016).
After beginning my teaching profession, I spent four wonderful years in the role of Reading Specialist. In addition, I have also served as an English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher and worked with small groups of children needing additional support in linguistics and literacy. I have served on many committees and leadership roles within my previous schools, and I enjoy gaining new information to better equip our learners with the needed tools for academic success. I believe in exploratory learning with meaningful activities to promote a greater understanding of new knowledge and lifelong learning. I am so eager to be with E.E.E.C and work along-side our educators this school year! I look forward to a progressive and exciting school year!
Outside of my passion for teaching, I love spending time with my family and am without a doubt a true Alabama Crimson Tide fan! I also spend time during the summer paddleboarding, visiting the beach, and spending time through courses or workshops gaining knowledge of the current teaching strategies that can benefit our teachers and learners. My children, Kade, and Karson along with my precious daughter-in-law, Haley, and grandbaby, Emreigh, keep me on my toes and busy loving life!
