    Dear Parents 

           I am excited to begin another academic year of learning here at our Hickory Flat Elementary home.  I am also happy and honored to welcome you and your child, or children to our 2023-2024 Gifted Services Team and my classroom.
         The foundations of learning for our gifted scholars were established in kindergarten.  Those foundational skills will continue to transform and manifest positively into the successful journey your young scholar will embark upon, through each grade level and beyond.  I am confident that your child's love of learning will continue to grow and be challenged in leaps and bounds this year.  
           We will work together and grow in experience, by exploring and digging deeper into the wonders of our world.  Lessons and activities, based on authentic and real world experiences, will be tailored to your child's personal academic needs. Their interests in Science and Social Studies will be infused with Mathematics and Language Arts as we delve into all aspects of our highly effective classroom environment, implementing specific components of both teaching and learning throughout every content encounter we engage in. I am invested in delivering lessons that will capture your child's attention, and positively form a JOYFUL and PRODUCTIVE learning journey, filled with success.
          Now... A little more about me:
          During my many years of service as a Kindergarten teacher, I have had the honor of teaching many of your children, and securing the foundations of their learning. I know many of you well, but for those who I have yet to meet, I will share a little about myself:
         I was born in England, and am a proud mother of three children.  In England, I worked primarily representing the rights of children within the Judicial System.  I also taught and supported children with challenging behaviors.  I achieved my Bachelors degree in Education and Certification in Counselling while in England, and my Montessori Certification, and Masters Degree (Mercer University) were attained here in Georgia. I was honored to serve as 'Teacher of the Year' in 2019-2020, and I also hold certifications in both Gifted Education and Mathematics. 
           I look forward to embarking on a great partnership with you all; one that will encourage your child to become an active learner, the owner of high expectations, and a scholar who strives to be the best that he or she can be, at all times. 
               We are going to have a wonderful year!
