Hi Parents!

I am currently a First Grade teacher at Mollie Ray Elementary School in Orlando. I have taught Kindergarten at Mollie Ray for 3 years. This year I was asked to loop with my class into First Grade. Teaching primary grades is definitely my passion! I LOVE helping students develop a strong foundation for later grades. My goal is to inspire kids to love learning and reach their full potential. I believe EVERY child can learn and succeed!

Hi Parents!

I am currently a First Grade teacher at Mollie Ray Elementary School in Orlando. I have taught Kindergarten at Mollie Ray for 3 years. This year I was asked to loop with my class into First Grade. Teaching primary grades is definitely my passion! I LOVE helping students develop a strong foundation for later grades. My goal is to inspire kids to love learning and reach their full potential. I believe EVERY child can learn and succeed!

In addition to teaching Kindergarten, I have experience working with rising 3rd graders on remedial math skills during summer school in Tulsa, OK. By the end of the summer, all of my students were prepared for 3rd grade. I have also had the pleasure of working as an after school tutor in my home state of NC (all elementary grades) as well as at Mollie Ray (2nd grade). I am currently doing private tutoring which will continue during the summer and into the school year as my schedule permits.

My passion for education was sparked when my children (now 31 and 26) were in elementary school. I worked part time as a teacher's assistance and found that the classroom was where I belonged and that working with students in small groups and one-on-one was a great strength of mine. Even now, as a classroom teacher, my favorite part of the day is when I work with my small groups on phonics skills, guided reading and math skills during center time.

I specialize in moving students to grade level when they may be struggling with some foundational skills. If those foundational skills are missed during the primary years, the probability of there being academic problems in upper grades is very high. The great news is that students can always go back and obtain that firm foundation and work to build their skills from there.

I am rated as a Highly Effective educator and I believe the building of strong relationships with my students is one of the reasons for that success. My favorite educational quote is from a master teacher by the name of Rita Pierson.
"Every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.”
In her Ted Talk, she goes on to say “I gave [my students] a saying to say: 'I am somebody. I was somebody when I came. I'll be a better somebody when I leave."
My purpose is to help students realize they are somebody and that they will be an even better somebody when they set their minds to it and put in the work! I am ready to coach and guide your child to being an even better somebody!
