If you think you can... you can and if you think you can't... you can't. Either way you are right.
My Classroom Mission
Brainy Bears will learn the Language Arts curriculum by following the PAWS Norms, Practicing "People Pleasers", and by using the R (read). T(talk). W (Write) method.
I am a 24 year veteran teacher who graduated from Catawba College. I obtained my AIG certification from High Point University,spring 2004. I believe children are better students when they have a stake in their learning. I like for students to have choices in the way they learn and complete assignments. I am thrilled when my encouragement and coaching helps a young person. It thrills me to see a student's face light up when they really "get it." Wow what a feeling!
Family is very important to me. I have one daughter. We have 4 generations living on my mother's side of the family. I am busy enjoying life with my 5 grandbabies. Reading, board games, ballgames, playing tennis, swimming, hiking, and traveling over the summer to the beach are some extracurricular activities we enjoy together. I enjoy being a lifelong learner and look forward to encouraging my students to set high goals for academic success. Working together will bring many growth opportunites. I am glad to be able to share this year with you.
