I came from England where I had been teaching fifth and sixth graders at RAF Alconbury for the Department of Defense Dependents Schools. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Art from Clarion State College and my teaching certification from the University of North Carolina. I also have a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Oklahoma. My current professional development is focusing on teaching my students about having a growth mindset. I have recently read Mindsets in the Classroom and will be talking about it at Back to School night. This summer I also was fortunate enough to attended a fabulous course from Columbia University's Teacher's College. So many new ideas!
Teaching is definitely a work of heart!
