I am excited to begin a new academic year of learning here at our Hickory Flat Elementary. I am also happy and honored to welcome you and your child, or children to our 2021-2022 Gifted Services Team and my classroom.
The foundations of learning that are set with our gifted scholars, and it is these foundations that continue to transform and manifest positively into the successful journey your young scholar will embark upon through each grade level and beyond. I am confident that your child's love of learning will continue to grow and be challenged in leaps and bounds this year.
We will work together and grow in experience, by exploring and digging deeper into the wonders of our world. Lessons and activities based on authentic, real world experiences will be tailored to your child's personal academic needs, and interests in Science and Social Studies with Mathematics, and Language Arts infused throughout every encounter. Our lessons will capture your child's attention, and positively form a joyful and productive learning journey, filled with success.
A little about me:
During my service here as a kindergarten teacher, I have had the honor to teach many of your children, and helped to set their foundations of learning. I know many of you well, but for those who I am yet to meet, I will share a little about myself:
I was born in England, and worked primarily representing the rights of children within the Judicial System. I achieved a Bachelors in Education in the U.K., and Certification in Counselling, and my Montessori Certification and Masters Degree (Mercer University) was attained in the U.S. I was honored to serve as Teacher of the Year in 2019-2020, and I also hold certifications in both Gifted, and Mathematics.
I am looking forward to forming a great partnership with you; one that will encourage your child to become an active learner, the owner of high expectations, and one that strives to be the best that he or she can be, at all times.
We are going to have a wonderful year!
Teacher of the Year 2019-2020
