Title I

      This is my sixth year as Emma Elementary's Lead Title I Teacher. As the Title I Reading Specialist at Emma Elementary, I look forward to helping students become life-long readers.
     The Title 1 staff visits each classroom for at least 30 minutes of daily small group reading instruction. The Emma Title I staff consists of myself  as well as six well-trained paraprofessionals: Barbara Burnett  TammyCutshall, Amy Davis, Kristen Eckley, and Doris Reeves. 
      I taught first grade at Emma for 12 years. I graduated from Mars Hill College with a BA in Elementary Education and from Montreat College with a MA in Elementary Education.
           I love teaching ! The biggest joy I get from teaching is watching the excitement in children when they are successful. My goal is to instill a love of learning in my students that they will carry throughout their entire educational career .
