• Terrell Middle Teacher of the Year

    I am a graduate of Fort Valley State University and currently hold a

    Master's Degree in Elementary Education.  I teach Sixth grade math at
    Terrell Middle School and believe that every child can learn when
    properly stimulated with engaging activities and information related
    to real-world experiences. It is the responsibility of teacher to seek
    vital skills and tools necessary to instruct students at high
    conceptual levels of learning.  Students should be continually
    encouraged to solve problems similar to those they encounter outside
    of school to prepare them to productive citizens. My teaching style
    incorporates hand -on learning as a major teaching strategy.
    Incorporating a variety of instructional strategies motivates students
    to take risks and build self-confidence to achieve at higher levels
    during the instructional class period.  I believe that, as teacher, it
    is my duty to ensure that learning takes place in a safe environment
    that is conducive to learning.  My decision to pursue a career in
    teaching is due to my desire to make a positive impact on a child.  I
    cannot think of any better way to contribute to my community.
