2020 Kentucky Teacher of the Year
School: Georgetown Middle School, Scott County
Grade/Subject: 8th Grade Language Arts
Years of Experience: 5.5
I became a teacher because I wanted to instill an intrinsic love of reading in young adults.
My favorite thing about being a teacher is connecting students to books I think they’ll enjoy and helping to grow an intrinsic interest in reading in my students.
When I’m not at school, you’ll find me at Chick-fil-a with my family or at Bargain Hunt without my family.
If I could have a superpower, it would be underwater breathing or eating pineapple pizza without gaining weight.
