I am an eighth-grade mathematics teacher, and I have taught in Polk County for 36 years. I have a B.S., an M.Ed., and an Ed.S. in Middle Grades Education from the University of West Georgia and a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from Northcentral University.
I believe that learning is an active process and effective learning requires collaboration among teachers, students, and parents grounded in mutual respect and trust. In order to make each year a successful one, teamwork and cooperation are required by all. It is my mission to provide a safe, supportive environment that promotes self-discipline, motivation, and excellence in learning.
