BS Early Childhood Education
Hi friends! My name is Ms. Sterling. This will be my first year teaching at Hickory Flat and I could not be more excited! I graduated from the University of Alabama in July 2021 majoring in Early Childhood Education (Roll Tide!). I am origionally from Phoenix, Arizona and recently moved from Augusta, Georgia where I lived for eight years. My family and I have three golden retrievers (Remington, Ryleigh, and Rubie Mae) who are my whole heart!
I knew ever since I was a little girl that I wanted to be a teacher. I attribute my passion for teaching to my amazing elementary school teachers who I wanted to be just like when I grew up. As I made my way through college and started to develop my teaching philosophy I knew that one thing would be true - each and every child who walks into my classroom will feel loved, seen, and known. This means that I want to nurture and care for the whole child. I want to help teach them how to be loving and caring people who love and care for others, and not just teach them adademic content. Lastly, parent involvement and open communication is very important to me. Not only am I here for your child, but I am also here for you, the parent. After all, we should be a TEAM in ensuring your child's success :)
