I am so proud to be representing Oak Grove Elementary School as the current Teacher of the Year. I have taught Language Arts and social studies here for 18 years. My children both attended this outstanding school, and I am so pleased to still be here as a 4th grade teacher. I graduated from USC with a Bachelors of Arts in Journalism. I then returned to USC to receive my Masters in Elementary Education. I currently have my Masters plus 30 in Elementary Education. I have been teaching for a total of 28 years. I believe that all students possess an inherent desire to learn. It is our responsibility as educators to help them find the spark that is unique to them and their learning style. It is imperative that we identify the strengths of these young children so that they are assured a successful and meaningful education.
