My journey through academia began at Marshall University by pursuing personal interests in science, technology, and languages. This pursuit yielded a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences, Science Education, and minors in Chemistry and Spanish. Coupled with my interest in Science is a passion for influencing the education of others. This sparked me to pursue and obtain state teacher certification, following in the educator footsteps of my mother and grandmother. Then, I continued my education by earning a M.A. Curriculum & Instruction/Teaching from Marshall University.
I began my professional career by relocating to North Carolina, and teaching middle grades students. I have since been fascinated by analyzing the relationships among curriculum instruction, and learning and motivation theories, and young adolescent learners. I obtained North Carolina teacher certification in the areas of middle grades mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, and gifted education. I also obtained certification to teach the high school sciences. I have had the opportunity to teach sixth, seventh, and eighth graders language arts, math, science, and social studies. Recently, I obtained certification in School Administration. My particular interest in the educational technology field compelled me to complete coursework at UNCW in the area of Instructional Technology.
I am in love with the teaching and learning process! I look forward to ensuring that all students receive the best in education and a positive experience at Moore Square Magnet Middle School! I plan on delivering the curriculum in a unique and compelling way that inspires students to think critically and creatively.
