I am a graduate of Georgia State University, where I obtained my B.S. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education with a dual certification in special education. I am currently pursuing an M.Ed in Learning Design and Leadership with a technology specialist endorsement from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am also completing my final semester in my gifted endorsement course. I will be gifted certified by June 2021! I have had a passion for learning and educating others since I was young. In fact, it is the glee that appeared on my peers' faces when I had clearly explained something to them that helped skyrocket my passion. I teach because I admire the lightbulbs and "aha" moments that overcome all students, both young and old. Since graduation, I have been a fifth grade educator at a K-8 charter facility. I currently teach all elementary-level subjects while simultaneously implementing both cross-curricular and International Baccalaureate curricula within my lessons. Education is the bridge to many new opportunities, and it is simply my job to help students along the way. In my spare time, I like to write, read, shop, and hang out with my friends and family.
