Degrees and Certifications:
Background: I am originally from Michigan where I attended Western Michigan University and received my degree in Elementary Education. After 6 years of teaching the fourth and second grades in Florida and South Carolina (DD2 schools) I received an MED in languages (ESOL) from the College of Charleston.
Teaching Experience: I began my teaching carreer in Florida teaching 4th grade. This is where my love for EL students began. After two years in Florida, we moved to South Carolina where I taught 2nd grade for 6 years at FDES and EES. During this time, I received my MED in Languages from the College of Charleston. After three years of staying home with my children, I came back to DD2 as an EL teacher at EES. After two years, I moved to BHES, GMS, SHES and RMSA. After another two years, I expaned to ARHS. This is my second year teaching at ARHS and I absolutely love it!
