I am thrilled to be teaching 3rd grade at Franklin Discovery Academy! This is such an important age where children grow leaps and bounds right before your eyes. I feel so blessed to be a part of that growing process and love helping them learn to see their beautiful potentials in this world. I have been heavily involved in the PTA and a substitute teacher for over 15 years before finding Franklin Discovery. Although I haven't been a licensed teacher as long as some, I feel like a veteran having been as involved as I have been. I love children. I love teaching. I love helping each individual child discover their strengths and help them power through those educational growing pains. I love each child genuinely and sincerely hope they feel that from me in all I do. I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and acquired my teaching license at a later date. I am currently working on my Master's degree in Instructional Design. I have 4 beautiful daughters who are angels sent from Heaven. They are everything to me and truly my best friends. My greatest joys come through them and my favorite things to do revolve around them in every way. My all-time favorite thing to do in this life is to travel with my daughters! I genuinely love experiencing the history behind the places I visit, and love to experience the culture as well. I have been to 48 states and 22 countries and counting! My dream is to live in the United Kingdom somewhere and travel more extensively through Europe....maybe when I retire! I also love all things Disney. I'll admit it. I'm a true Disney fan. It's truly the happiest place on earth.
