Greetings, Gators! Welcome to the Swamp.
You are the high school graduating class of 2023, and I welcome you to the 7th grade.
It is my honor to serve as your English Language Arts and/or Reading Enrichment instructor during this 2017-2018 school term. I am excited about our learning and growing together in a supportive and engaging learning community. The three core values that drive my interactions with you follow.
Providing (you) Red Carpet Customer Service: My passion is serving you as a learner. Your needs and interests matter to me as I work to help you achieve academic success, develop positive behaviors, and become a critically thinking and actively engaged citizen in our classroom and our world. I promise to make you feel welcomed, valued, and appreciated.
Being About the Business of (your) Education: "Education is not preparation for the real world. Education is the real world" (John Dewey). Together, we must work hard to be purposeful in meeting and exceeding expectations for the ABC's: academics, behavior, and citizenship. I promise to be about the buisness of your well-being and your success.
Being an (your) Ambassador: I am a proud ambassador of Aiken County Public Schools, Aiken Middle School, and you. I promise to be your advocate and to teach you to be an advocate for yourself. We will work daily as individuals and a learning community to be our best selves as we exhibit Gator Pride.
You are at the center of our our learning community. We will work hard to achieve and celebrate your successes. Yes, successes! I believe in you and I want to be a major part of your high school graduation preparations as your future begins now. With that in mind, we will read, write, ask questions, and communicate daily so that you are college and career ready.
When I am not planning for you or working with you, I enjoy spending time with and entertaining family and friends. I am a self-proclaimed "foodie" who loves to eat good food. I love reading, road trips, board/word games, and all things animal prints. I have also been known to enjoy a good nap. Music of all kinds is my therapy and escape. You will see me groove to it frequently as I never miss a moment to incorporate into our classroom. I am a Carolina Gamecock & I bleed garnet & black. Go, Gamecocks! So, as I enter my second year at Aiken Middle Schoool and sevententh year as an educator, I look forward to bleeding the green and gold of the Gators.
