Welcome Second Grade, Wildcats!
I am so excited to start another amazing year at MAC! This is my 10th year teaching. I am a graduate of Southeastern University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with an ESOL and reading endorsement. I have a passion for learning and teaching and it gives me great joy to be able to inspire students to feel the same way when coming to school! I am committed to creating a classroom environment where students feel loved, valued, trusted, and understand they are an integral part of our family of learners. Each day learning will be challenging, fun, positive, and engaging. With the combined effort of student, parent, and teacher I am confident that this will be a year of growth and success! 

What we are learning?
