Hello friends!

Welcome to my EDMS 7030E Genius Hour blog!

I’m currently in the Middle Grades Education MAT program at UGA, focusing on English Language Arts and Math.  My first degree from UGA was a B.A. in English, with an area of emphasis in creative writing. I’ve been living in Georgia for over half my life now, but I’m originally from New Jersey.  I can honestly say that my life really began when I came back to UGA 2 Januaries ago, and I have learned an incredible amount about others and about myself since starting the Middle Grades program last August.  It’s been a crazy journey, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Education has always been an interest of mine, and now it has become my passion.  I find Middle School aged kids fascinating, intriguing, and inspiring.  I don’t want to be the teacher that just stands at the front of the room spouting as many facts as possible and then sitting at my desk while my students work silently on their worksheets.  I want my kids to be invested in their education, I want them to care about their future, and I want them to have fun while learning!

And, lest I forget – Sic ’em!
