Pickett's Mill Pirates,
I am very excited to be a math resource to the students, parents, and teachers of Pickett's Mill Elementary! Before coming to Pickett's Mill I ran a Math Lab at Lewis Elementary for 2 years. In the past I was a Math Specialist for 2 years at Austell Elementary. I have also been a classroom teacher in kindergarten, third grade, and fifth grade. This will be my 17th year teaching.
I received my bachelor, masters, and specialist degrees in Early Childhood Education from the State University of West Georgia. I have also earned a Reading Endorsement, Science Endorsement and Gifted Endorsement. I have had a lot of extra training in math while being a Math Specialist and Math Contact.
I have been married for 16 years to Doug and we have two daughters. Aliya Jade is in third grade at Pickett's Mill and Alayna Jane is in eighth grade at Durham Middle. We recently got a new puppy named Luna who we adore.
I feel very blessed to have a job that is so rewarding and that I enjoy! I truly believe that every child can learn but not always in the same way. I also believe that every parent wants the best for their child and wants to help them but does not always have the tools. The way math is taught has changed a lot since you and I were in elementary school so please don't hesitate to contact me so that I can help you help your child!
