Welcome to Williams! Go Tigers!
We have a fun curriculum that incorporates all of our Early Learning Standards. The Emerging Language & Literacy Curriculum (ELLC) prepares preschoolers for success in Kindergarten and gives them a strong foundation in oral language and literacy with this scientifically based curriculum. This program not only addresses all developmental domains with theme-based units, children's literature, multi sensory activities, scaffolded instruction and parental involvement but also creates an engaging environment with activity and play-based learning.
Education & Experience
Currently I am finishing my Masters Degree to become a Certified Reading Specialist through Drury University. I obtained my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education through Drury as well. I am certified in Special Education Birth through Third Grade. This is my fifth year teaching and my third year at Williams. I have also taught Second and First Grade. Prior to becoming a teacher I was a paraprofessional for four years in Early Childhood Special Education.
I have a beautiful daughter named Ariya and I am loving every minute of the toddler age! When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I enjoy doing things outdoors and shopping. I also am a huge sports fan!
