Bio

A Little About Me.....

In 2008, I moved from my home town of Fitzgerald, Georgia to Villa Rica, Georgia.  After substitute teaching for the Douglas County School System (DCSS) for a few years, I took a paraprofessional position at Bill Arp Elementary School.  Then in June 2012, I signed a contract with DCSS to be the Project CLASS teacher located at Arbor Station Elementary.  I worked in this position through the end of the 2015 - 2016 school year.  As the Project CLASS teacher, I worked with many different learners who came from any of the twenty elementary schools within Douglas County.  The students that were enrolled in this program during my four years as the teacher helped me grow as an individual and as a professional.  I thoroughly enjoyed working in this position, helping both general education and special education students positively improve their social and academic skills.  

Starting in August 2016, I moved into another enjoyable position and became a Special Education Interrelated (IRR) Teacher at Arbor Station Elementary.  Although I am new to this position, I still have the privilege of working with different learners, helping them to improve their academic and social skills just as I did as the Project CLASS teacher!

From my educational start back in 2003 to now, I have collaborated with many great teachers and administrators.  I am proud to be a member of such an honorable profession!  As I launch into my sixth year teaching, I am excited to still be a part of the Arbor Station family.  Our staff, students, and parents are a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to seeing what difference we can all make in our next school year!
