4th Grade Team
Welcome 4th grade students and parents to my webpage! I am excited to start my ninth year of teaching at MAC and 24rd year teaching overall. I graduated from Troy University in Troy, AL with a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I am certified in Elementary Education, Gifted, Reading, and ESOL. This year, Mrs. Teixeira and I will be team teaching. I will be responsible for math and science.
My husband and I have been married for 22 years. We have 2 wonderful children, a daughter who attends the University of Alabama and a son who attends McKeel Central. If it a Saturday in the fall, you will see me rooting on my alma mater, Troy University, as well as the Alabama Crimson Tide. ROLL TIDE! My hobbies include going on "adventures" with my son and husband and going to amusement parks.
I want the students to enter my classroom and see a safe learning haven surrounded by positivity, caring, and compassion. I want them to believe in our class community, and their importance in that community. I believe in the uniqueness of each student and appreciate their differences in learning styles. Therefore, I will be using multiple strategies to cater to all the learning styles of my students, including utilizing technology, providing creative project choices, and engaging in hands-on, minds-on activities. It is my hope that my students leave my classroom with a desire for knowledge and appreciation for our natural world around us.
