I received my bachelor's degree in History Teaching and Masters Degree in Middle School ELA from Eastern Kentucky University. I have previously taught at Model Laboratory School and Estill Success Academy. I am super excited to be teaching Social Studies at Estill County Middle School this year!
My philosophy of education is to invite students to direct their own learning experience. I think as teachers we must show them that they can achieve a measure of independence and motivation that will carry them beyond the classroom. The primary role of an educator is not only subject matter, but providing them with the tools they need and the necessary instruction to use those tools. We must give students the chance to discover the joys and excitement of learning as a personal goal, rather than a dictated one; this is what will make them successful.
