About The Teacher
This will be my sixth year at Britt David. I have always taught second graders,beginning with my student teaching experience at Wynnton School, under the supervision of the wonderful Ms. Seckinger. I graduated from Troy University with a Master's in Elementary Education. I became certified to teach gifted childrenin 2008. I am currently pursuing myDoctor of Education in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment. A goal that I am very proud of in myprofession! My resume is attached in thedownloadables portion of the website, if you would like to view my otherqualifications.
My first year of teaching occurred at Mathews Elementary Schoolwith second graders. I was the last onehired during that year, so when Midland Academy was built you know what thatmeans. I became homeless! During the past seven years, I have taughtsecond graders at Midland Academy. I amvery excited about the new challenge of teaching fourth graders at thiswonderful school.
Now a little about my personal life away from school! I am married
to the best man on the face of the Earth! His name is Gary. We live in
Phenix City, Alabama with our two dogs. Our dogs are the sweetest animals in theworld. We have a yellow lab, "Fletcher's”Yeller Head and a Pomeranian, Iluv "Lucy" Head. In September of 2008, we add a new member toour family. We had a precious littleboy, Walker Head. He is the joy of ourlives. I love to participate in outdooractivities, such as, camping, riding horses, crafts and BASEBALL. I have grown with age to love reading. It is a great release of stress for me thesedays! My husband and I are members of MyChurch of Columbus. Some of my rolemodels are Laura Bush, Reba McEntire, Mark Richt (love the coach but WAR EAGLE)and my mother. I love what they standfor in their everyday life. That is alittle about me and what and who I love in my life.

I believe all children learn at different speeds and with variousmethods of instruction.
I believe that I have an awesome responsibility to educate thefuture leaders of tomorrow to the absolute best of my ability.
I believe that I serve as a mother away from home for all childrenin my classroom. If a relationship andtrust are established with the family of the student in the beginning, aneducation is easy to accomplish for the child.
I believe that an academic education is vital, but a characterbuilding education through mutual respect is crucial.
