Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education
Hello and welcome to Loachapoka Elementary. I have been teaching the fourth grade since August, 2016. I graduated from Troy University in May of 2015. I worked as a substitute for the first year after I graduated. I wanted to get a feel for all of the county schools and get to know the principals and teachers. I attended grades 1 through 12 at Beulah High School and graduated in 1987. I didn't start back to school to work on my teaching degree until 2011. I am currently working on my Master's Degree from Grand Canyon University. I hope to be finished with my courses by the end of 2018.
I have been married for more than 20 years and raised two wonderful children. My son is married and has two beautiful children, my babies, and my daughter is married and trying to decide if she wants to start a family right now. I attend church regulary and work with the youth in our church. I love children and have been working with them, teaching them in one aspect or another for more than 30 years.
My favorite thing about working with these great children is that I am always learning something new myself. If we listen to what the kids are saying to us, it is amazing what we can learn from them.
