Welcome to our Classroom Community!
Fourth Grade Rocks! For a little information about me, I am an Asheville native and this is my second year teaching 4th grade at Candler Elementary I am married to a wonderful man named John, and although we do not have any children, our two cats, Crissy and Church, are spoiled rotten . I have a background in physical fitness and currently work as a Zumba instructor at several local gyms. I love to incorporate fitness into the classroom; we are certainly a moving class!
I was not the person who grew up dreaming of the day that I would be a teacher. In fact, it was not until I was almost finished with my undergraduate degree in history that I felt like the field of education might be a path I would choose. Although I have worked as an elementary assistant for several years, I completed my Master's of Arts in Teaching in the Spring of 2014 from Liberty University to obtain my teaching licensure in North Carolina.
In our classroom, we strive to create a learning environment that is safe, respectful, and most importantly, FUN! The students are at the front of the room teaching almost as much as I am, and I know that they enjoying sharing their knowledge with their classmates and with me. I truly enjoy coming to work with these students each morning, and I have found that I can learn just as much from them as they can from me. Please feel free to drop in on our community at anytime!
