About the Teacher
Bananas About Reading!
I graduated from Belhaven College with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. The 2013-2014 school year will be the seventeenth year I have taught at Madison Avenue. After nine years as a kindergarten teacher at MAE, I "graduated" to first grade. My goal as a new first grade teacher was to bring the hands-on learning environment with me from kindergarten. Eight years later, I still look forward to teaching our curriculum in a way that is hands-on and fun because I believe children need to be actively engaged in their learning for the learning to truly have meaning.
