Bio

Hello everyone! I am extremely excited about this school year! I am a mother of 3 wonderful children, Carli (22), Cade (18) and Cassi (18). Carli is a graduate from Clemson University and now works for Otis Elevators.  Cade and Cassi are twins and will be entering their freshman year at college, Cade at Newberry College and Cassi at Coastal Carolina University.   This will be my 19th year teaching.  I graduated from Clemson University in 1993 with a BA Degree in Elementary Education and I am certified to teach middle school math.

I will be teaching your child math this year and math is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!  We will work together in many different ways to be successful.  We will use manipulatives, write about how we solve problems, and do lots of practice.  I plan to vary the approach with the way we "tackle" our math problems on a daily basis.  I hope to have your kids up and moving as well as doing some traditional practice.  The way we do and learn math now is so different from the way you and I were taught.  I promise that your child will learn the processes along with understanding WHY they do what they do. My GOAL for the 2018-2019 school year is to make sure your child is a successful math student.

While teaching your child to do 4th grade math, I will also be there for them however they may need me.  I will love your child as I do my own.  I always ask myself, "Would I want this to be done or said to my child?"  Depending on the way I answer that question will be the way I move forward with my students.  I ask that you trust me to make the best decisions for your child while they are at Gallman.  I tell my students all the time, "You may not like me everyday, but I will love you always and one day you will understand."

Thanks for sharing your child with me and everyone here at Gallman Elementary! GO GATORS!
