1. What does true leadership mean to you?


True leadership is doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.   It is showing others, by your words and/or actions, the right was to behave, the right way to perform, the right way to live, etc.


2. What is your favorite thing about teaching at Wheelersburg Schools?


I love my 4th grade team!  I love that Wheelersburg promotes the family concept with our students.  Families care about each other. Families look out for each other. Families are devoted to one another.  The 4th grade teachers are not just co-workers, we are a family. 


3. Where did you go to college?


I got my Bachelor’s degree from Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, KY.  I earned my Master’s degree from National Louis University, which has campuses worldwide.  My campus was in a suburb outside of Chicago, IL.


4. Why did you want to become a teacher?


There are several things that influenced my decision to become a teacher.  First, I LOVED school when I was growing up. Because school was such a positive experience for me, I think maybe I never wanted to leave!  Also, my Aunt Linda was a teacher and I always looked up to her. When I lived in Germany, I substitute taught in a Department of Defense school and that’s when I fell in love with teaching.  


5. Why did you decide to teach 4th grade?


I taught 2nd grade for several years and was looking for a change, a professional challenge.  A 4th grade math position came open and I applied.

 

6. How do you highlight academic achievement in your classroom?


I rely heavily on verbal praise.   The past few years, I have mailed Posigrams to students and their parents.  This year, I’ve been handing out Pirate Posigrams to students, rather than mailing them.  I still try to contact parents by email or Remind when their child had been “caught” exhibiting PRIDE behavior.
