I am happy to teach yet another year! This is my 41st year to begin school. Some of my students are children of adults who were once my former students. That is very special to me! I teach 4th grade social studies which is American History from First Americans up to the years after the Civil War ended. I will also be teaching 4th grade science which includes studying animals, plants, light waves, space, and physics-all fun and interesting stuff!
I began my teaching career with 8th Graders teaching (you guessed it!) American History at Central Jr. High School which was in the present building of NGA.
I was born in Lincoln County and attended Fayetteville City Schools. I graduated from Central High School in Fayetteville, headed to MTSU, and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education.
Right away, I began a Master's Degree in Elementary Education.
About 10 years later, I worked on a certificate that was +30 hours beyond a Master's Degree in Education.
I came to South Lincoln in 1998 teaching a self-contained classroom of 6th grade.
