I am currently a 5th grade school teacher at South Dale Middle School. I teach math along with history and music. This will begin my 7th year teaching and I have previously taught 2nd and 4th grades at Midland City Elementary School. My most exciting aspects of teaching are: preparing our youth to become leaders of the world, guiding them in learning the truths of the unknown, and leading them toward their own aspirations of fulfilling the hopes, dreams, and goals which they have preset for themselves. I pray that each child walks away from this class knowing that if they believe in their goals and in themselves, then they can achieve what may even seem to be the impossible. I am also the sponsor of the BASIC (Brothers and Sisters in Christ) Club at South Dale and I encourage all who will to participate in this very active and positive environment of people which meet each Wednesday at 7:15 a.m. T thank God for all the accomplishments in my life and I strive to put him first in every decision I make both inside and outside the classroom. I am very happy to say that I am thankful for God, my family, and this amazing job!!!!
