Welcome to my online portfolio where you may become familiar with my philosophies and practices as a seasoned, successful educator. A facilitator of learning, my passion informs my pedagogy and impacts student engagement in meaningful ways. My focus on building culture provides for students in my class to experience a blended learning environment where they are moving, thinking and accessing technology. As you can see my professional history, I seek to gain strategies, utilize and share the worth in professional development, benefiting not only my classroom, but the school and district. My relationships with students, parents and other fellow educators are demonstrated in the ways I participate in leadership cohorts and involve stakeholders. For the 2018-2019 school year, I am serving the 7th grade students at Dickson Middle School in both History and English Language Arts with a Humanities approach.
