Degrees and Certifications:
Hello kindergarten families!
I am excited to welcome you and your child to FSUS! I am looking forward to a year full of growth through learning and play!
I am a Tallahassee native and a Seminole through and through. I graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and with endorsements in reading and ESOL. This is my third year teaching, and the world of kindergarten is my favorite place to be!
Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our fluffy goldendoodle as well as family and friends! My husband and I are licensed foster parents, and providing a safe and loving home for children is one of my greatest passions. My hobbies include playing board games, crafting, and being outdoors in the sunshine!
My goal as your child's teacher is to guide him or her to their utmost potential academically, socially, and emotionally. I strive to create a classroom environment where all of my students feel comfortable to try new things and where all students treat one another with kindness and respect. In my classroom we are a family. Kindergarten is a special opportunity to ignite a love of learning, and I hope that their positive experiences in kindergarten will carry with them throughout the rest of their K-12 and even post-grad experience!
You, parents and guardians, are your child's first and most important teacher. I truly value your support and collaboration as we work together to ensure the best experience for your kiddo! It is going to be a great year!
