Growing up, I had the most amazing teacher, my mother. She rubbed off on me (thankfully). I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 2013 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Since then, I’ve taught in three states across three grade levels. I taught First Grade for a year in Charleston, SC. Then we moved to Seattle, WA where I taught Kindergarten for two years. Most recently, I taught three years of Third Grade in Auburn, Alabama. War Eagle! My teaching passion lies with reading. I enjoy hearing the “Awe, man!” and “NO!” when a book is finished. My goal is to help teachers instill a love of reading in their students. I want students to crave books like their favorite food.
