High School: Mid-Carolina High
Favorite Aspect of Teaching in Newberry: Teachers and administrators in Newberry County put students first and encourage smaller class sizes when possible, therefore giving students the one-on-one attention they need and deserve. We are constantly tracking student progress and making the changes needed to improve student success.
Favorite Topic to Teach: The ability to read will impact a person's life forever. The part that I played in beginning that process fulfills me as a teacher. Authentic reading and writing motivates children to explore the joy that reading can bring. Finding the right kind of books can add great pleasure to a student's life. I love to teach the strategies and skills to create lifelong readers. I absolutely love the look on my first graders' faces when things "Click", when the reading process starts to fall into place for them!
Most Rewarding Aspect of Teaching: Creating lasting memories that I will cherish forever! Every year, I look forward to August because I get to meet my new students. I get to begin helping each of them reach their potential. I am always grateful for the memories that we give each other.
Favorite Book: 'Salt in His Shoes' by Deloris Jordan with Roslyn M. Jordan
