Hello! This is my fourth year with WPS and John Kerr Elementary. I am currently the Personalized Learning teacher for 4th grade at JKES. I have my MAT in Elementary education and my ELL endorsement. This year, I get to work closely with the classroom teachers to develop engaging learning experiences that focuses on student choice in path, pace, and place. I get to work with students and teachers in creating fun and personalized digital content with a focus on problem based learning and projects. I love to see students take ownership of their own learning! To check out some of the projects my students have done this year, visit here!
In addition to working with students, I also love sharing ideas with other educators! My next presentation will be at ISTE this summer, please check it out here! I will be sharing about personalized learning in a blended classroom-I can't wait!
When I am not teaching, I love being outdoors. My family and I spend a lot of time hiking, camping, fishing, and floating on the river whenever we can. I love to read all kinds of books and travel, as well. My husband and I moved here with our two children from South Carolina, where I graduated from USC. I am also a big soccer nut. I am currently the Varsity Girls Soccer Coach at Handley. I am also the Trout in the Classroom Coordinator for Winchester TU and love having a tank full of trout in my classroom each year!
