Bio

 

I grew up in rural New Hope, Alabama, and still live there today along with my husband, Joe. A few of our neighbors include our daughter, Elizabeth, son-in-law, Taylor, and granddaughter, Adalyn (set to make her debut mid-August 2018), as well as my parents.

As you can see, family is extremely important to me, and I am forewarning you that your child is about to be a part of my extended family. Each and every child I have ever taught is still one of my “children,” and I will always have an interest in their success and happiness. I am eager to meet you and your child as we begin their journey in the sixth grade together here at NBES.

 

Core Beliefs About Learning

GROWTH  IS THE GOAL.

We are not born with a certain amount of intelligence/abilities. Our intelligence, abilities, talents, & character CAN be developed and increased with effort, learning, & dedication. I put more emphasis on growth rather than achievement.

LEARNING OCCURS THROUGH PRODUCTIVE STRUGGLE.

I believe we learn the most when we are prepared and trained to “productively” struggle. We are only as strong as our largest amount of struggle. Learning doesn’t take place if we just repeat what we already know. True learning takes place when we are attempting to do something we have never done.

CHARACTER MATTERS.

It doesn’t matter how intelligent or talented we are. Our character does matter. If we don’t use our intelligence/talent to make a positive difference in others’ lives and our communities, it is wasted.

OUR LEARNING MUST BE RELEVANT TO OUR LIVES.

We are motivated to learn what we need to be successful in life. Learning goals must be relevant.

 

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”     Aristotle
