Experience

 

I have over 19 years of experience teaching Kindergarten through fourth grade.  Teaching is my passion!  I love working with the kids and seeing them grow through out the year!  Teaching is my calling and my purpose.  

I started my career in Cobb County in 1996 at Bryant Elementary School teaching 3rd grade.  I then moved to Varner Elementary where I taught 4th grade for three years.  I transferred to Kemp Elementary where I taught 4th grade for 3 years and 2nd grade for six years.

I was hired at Sweetwater in 2012 to teach Kindergarten.  I looped with my Kindergarten class to 1st grade and taught in first for the last four years.  I love Sweetwater and the community I serve.  

I am now the Intervention Specialist.  In this role I am responsible for identifying struggling students I where remediate and accelerate their learning.  I love helping the students and bridging the gaps so that they do not fall through the cracks.  I love coming to work everyday and feel like I am making a difference in the lives of the children.  Teaching for me is not "Just a Job,"  it is my career and my passion.
