      Hello and welcome to my classroom!  I am so excited to be teaching third grade at Southside Elementary this year!  I graduated from Jacksonville State University with a BS in Elementary/Early Childhood Education.  I went on to receive my Master's from the University of Alabama in Elementary Ed.  I am also a  National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy.  I am also a certified mentor for candidates currently seeking certification.  It is always exciting to work with other teachers and get to see first hand the wonderful things that they do in their classrooms!  I am always looking for new ideas to incorporate into my classroom.  I completed the National Writing Project at Jacksonville State University in 2010.  I learned so many powerful lessons to incorporate into my love of teaching writing.  I can't wait for my students to get their pencils powered up for writing!   I am also the Director of Extended Day here at Southside Elementary.  In the summers, I am Director of Camp Cardinal on the campus of Gadsden State Community College.  
 
I have two wonderful sons, Jarred and Jordan.  Jarred is a graduate of Auburn University in Electrical Engineering.  He currently works in Birmingham.  He is not only smart, but handsome.  Jordan is a Senior at Southside High School and extraordinary in every way!  He is a member of the National Honor Society and loves to play competitive soccer, fish, hunt, and work out at the gym.  We have three dogs Rossco, Rowdy, and Chewy,  If you are in my room this year, you will hear tons of stories about all my boys!    
 
I love to cook, paint, read, and write!  Most of all I love to teach third grade!  We are off to a great year.
