Welcome to First Grade!

I have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Radford University and a M.S. in Reading from Longwood University. I have taught second and first grades at Amelia County Elementary School.  I love my firsties!!  I love to read and watch movies.  My favorite animal, as my students can tell you, is a giraffe. My favorite colors are teal, blue, and green.
