English Language Development Program
This is my 13th year teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages for Montgomery County Schools. I am happy to say, I LOVE MY JOB!!!
My students all come from homes where another language is spoken. In Montgomery County, we have approximately 120 students in the English Language Development Program and about 6 different languages are represented. That makes my job very interesting and challenging.
I'll tell you a little about myself. First, I have a wonderful husband, Damon. He is very creative, smart and inspiring. We have 2 children. My stepdaughter, Hailee is a graduate of the University of Kentucky. She has recently graduated top 6 of her Navy recruit class in Great Lakes, Illinois and is now serving in Rota, Spain. Prior to that, she served in the Peace Corp in the area of Public Health. She is such a hard worker and a free spirit. I only wish I could see the world through her eyes. Last, my son Anthony is a student at Morehead State University. I am so proud to be his mom. He is so witty, generous, and kind. In addition to my human children, I have 1 doggie. Charles Barkley is my overgrown, overweight and extremely friendly Pomeranian. He actually smiles, loves to swim and can catch food in midair.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in psychology and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree in secondary social studies from Morehead State University. In 2010, I completed my ESL endorsement through Murray State University followed by a Rank I certification from Morehead State University. I love learning and I hope my students are inspired by my passion for education.
I can't wait to have another exciting and effective year with our children.
