Second Grade! Wow!
Welcome to our class website! I am so thankful that you are part of our classroom family this year!
Just Some Information about Me:
Grade Level/Subject taught: 1st, 5th, and 2nd!
Favorite subject in school: Reading/Writing
Favorite children's book: "You are Special" by Max Lucado
Family information: My family consists of my husband of 23 years, Pacer; and our children, Emily, who is 20 and a junior at the University of the Cumberlandsl; and Caleb, who is 18 and a freshman at Asbury University. We also have a dog, named Sitka, and four, yes four, cats: Socks, Hamlet, Tybalt, and Penelope, all of whom are completely spoiled. Our family also attends church at Catalyst Christian in Nicholasville.
We have a full family, but we have a lot of fun and a lot of love. I wouldn't want it any other way.
Fun Fact: I mentioned that I am from Jessamine County, but I was also a Warner Wildcat myself (back when Warner was next door). Somewhere my mom still has a picture of me in my Warner Wildcat t-shirt. Except for my years at Cumberland, I have lived in Nicholasville all of my life.
Another random fun fact that not many people know is that I had a short story published several years ago. I have always enjoyed writing, and I took a class on Children's Literature after getting my bachelor's degree. The professor suggested that I publish it, so I sent it to several magazines. A magazine for young girls offered to publish it, and I made $25.00 from it. (I still have the check, as I was more excited about getting my story and picture in a magazine that I was about the $25.00. My mom still has a copy of the magazine, but I have no idea what I did with my copy.) =) Still, I like to joke that I am a published writer. Although that is definitely not my calling. I will stick with teaching, which is my passion. I love what I do! And I love who I get to do it with at our wonderful little school.
I love teaching, and I especially love teaching at Warner! I work with some amazing colleagues, and, at Warner, everything is about our students--all day, every day. I am very blessed to be a small part of an absolutely incredible school. We want our kids to be successful in reading, writing, and math, but we also want them to be successful in life. It's a great place to be! There truly is no place like Warner!
