 I resumed teaching full time in August of 1996 at Ringgold Elementary School.  I used the 1995 edition to pilot the
Open Court "Collection for Young Scholars" Reading program.  With much student success and research, SRA McGraw-Hill selected me along with 70 other teachers around the United States to review and pilot the new 2002 edition of Open Court Reading.  I most recently enjoyed piloting the new 2008 standards based edition of SRA McGraw-Hill's Open Court "Imagine It!" series.
I have served as a part-time Reading consultant, worked with, and also trained other teachers around the Southeast to use Open Court Reading.
     In the fall of 2004, my colleagues honored me in being selected as Teacher of the Year for the 2004-2005 school year to represent Ringgold Primary School.  This will be my 18th year of teaching 1st grade beginning at Ringgold Elementary and then moving into our new Ringgold Primary in 1999.

I have also trained as a model teacher for standards based teaching of Georgia's Common Core Math from 2008-present.
