Grade 3

Since I was in the third grade, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. Now I teach third grade as well as having taught second and fourth grade. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Growth and Development from the University of Memphis. Additionally, I earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Bowie State University. I’ve been teaching at McLean since 2005, and I am still as inspired as my first year. McLean is an exceptional educational environment where teachers are encouraged to seek continuous professional development. Teachers are also allowed to be creative in every lesson, and we have so many opportunities to try new ideas. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, dancing, shopping with my mom and younger sister, and exploring all that Washington, DC has to offer. Hands-on learning experiences, cooperative learning, personal responsibility, and a love of learning are at the forefront in my classroom. My philosophy of education is that every child can learn and succeed. One of my favorite quotes about teaching is “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
