Interest

Teaching has always been a passion of mine.  I am thrilled to find a new way to present material to a student.  I love getting to know my students and finding out which ways they learn best.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my Husband, Tim, and our four month old daughter, Kinsley.  I am excited to live in this area that is so rich with American History.  We are eager to explore our new home and to grow as a family and professionally.  Thank you so much for taking the time to view my website. 

Objective

To successfully obtain a long term career utilizing my education and training as an elementary teacher.

Work experience

5th Grade Teacher/Mathematics Interventionist

Horry County Schools

I began working for Horry County Schools as a substitute teacher while still attending college.  After earning my teaching certficate, I began working as a Math Interventionist where I was responsible for pulling small groups of various aged students.  While I was working as an interventionist, I implemented both the Number Worlds program as well as the Everyday Mathematics program. I was then hired to teach fifth grade where I had numerous responsiblities.  Not only was I responsible for daily attendance, lunch and breakfast counts, the Anti-Bullying Committee, but the entire fifth grade curriculum as well.  I incorporated the use of technology daily with my students and also created many assessments, powerpoints, and taught to the individual needs of my students. Each school that I have taught in has been a Title I school, which means that school has a higher rate of students in poverty.  I have a passion for working in such environments because I feel that I am able to make a connection and inspire those students.  I resigned in March 2013 in order to move for my husband's job.  I am very eager to get back into teaching and reaching out to students to help them succeed.
