School: North Calloway Elementary, Calloway County
Grade: 1st
Years of Experience:14

I became a teacher because teachers were who made a difference in my life and planted the seed that I could be the first in my family to go to college and do whatever I dreamed of.

My favorite thing about being a teacher is teaching a kid to read. It is like magic is happening. Then I teach them to LOVE reading. If they don’t love reading they just haven’t found the right book.

When I’m not at school, you’ll find me volunteering a Soup for the Soul or in Frankfort advocating for our students. I am a pretty busy mama of five too.

If I could have a superpower, it would be making sure all children feel loved especially when they are not with me.
