Experience and Biography:
I have been a member of the dedicated parent and teacher community within Enterprise City Schools since my children’s 2005 school year. I am proud to transfer as an Instructional Partner here at Enterprise Early Education Center. The Enterprise City School System is undeniably the best place to be! I have taught several grade levels K-6, ESL, and supported ELA and ESL at a middle school level. Throughout my teaching career, I also have experience serving learners K-12 as a Local Reading Specialist and being an Instructional Partner with Enterprise City Schools.
After beginning my teaching profession, I spent four wonderful years in the role of Reading Specialist. In addition, I have also served as an English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher and worked with small groups of children needing additional support in linguistics and literacy. I have served on many committees and leadership roles and became certified in specific areas, including ACIP, ARI, Alabama Literacy Act, LETRS, and several others. I enjoy gaining new information to better equip our learners with the needed tools for academic success. I believe in learning with meaningful activities to promote a greater understanding of new knowledge and lifelong learning. I am so eager to be with E.E.E.C and work alongside our educators each school year! I look forward to a progressive and exciting school year.
Outside of my passion for teaching, I love spending time with my family, supporting the Alabama Crimson Tide, and boating with family! I also spend time during the summer visiting the beach or lake and spending time on courses or workshops gaining knowledge of the current teaching strategies that can benefit our teachers and learners. My children, Kade (Haley) and Karson (Emily), along with my precious grandbabies, Emreigh and Nellie Blaire, keep me on my toes and busy loving life!
