Middle School Memory:
The sixth grade at my middle school went to Tremont. We spent a week in the outdoors learning about plants and animals. We also learned a lot about each other and ourselves. I think this was the first time I really enjoyed science. Looking back on this experience I hope to use a hands on approach to teaching science in hopes that my students will develop that same love for science.
I filled an interim position teaching seventh grade science last year at Sweetwater Junior High School. I also taught eighth grade ELA at Tellico Plains Junior High for two years.
My husband and I will be celebrating our nineteenth anniversary this November. I have two sons, who are grown and live on their own. I have no grandchildren at this time, however, there are some very special children in my life including great-nieces and nephews as well as some very special little girls at my church. They have me spoiled rotten.
