Hello My Name Is...
Welcome! I am so excited to begin this new school year at Laing Middle School. I began my teaching career in Chattanooga, TN and moved to Charleston last summer. I have taught Math and Science for the past three years in Tennessee, and English and Social Studies my first year teaching.
I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) in Middle Grades Education: English & Social Sciences with a pre-dental minor in 2006. I also have a masters degree from UTC in School leadership with a reading specialist concentration.
As a teacher, I hope to serve as an example to my students that you can love English and Social Studies even if you're "good" at Math and Science!

As soon as students recieve iPads, I will be posting assignments and communications on Edmodo. We will spend some time in class joining my group on Edmodo, and setting up accounts. Your parent code can be found on the left hand side of your child's account (at the bottom).
