This is my seventh year at The Museum School, but my 18th year of teaching in the classroom. I have taught Science, Social Studies, and Reading in grades 6-8 in Dekalb County and Forsyth County. I have been fortunate to teach a wide variety of students that differ in their backgrounds and needs.
A personal note: I live with my husband and 3 year old son in Decatur. I am most at peace when I am outside and/or active; that could be hiking, biking, traveling, camping, or sitting in a hammock and reading.
Teaching Philosophy: My Philosophy is somewhat wrapped up in my content area. I think kids are born with a natural curiosity and wonder about the world around them, which is the basis of science: a question. My hope in teaching is to maintain and grow that curiosity in kids. I want kids to desire to be creative, innovative, and knowledgeable. I hope to accomplish this goal by providing engaging and hands-on instruction that addresses a variety of learning styles.
