Hello My Name Is...

I am so excited to begin my 12th year at Minor (formerly Bottenfield) by teaching your child. I promise to do my best to nurture a love of learning in your child. You will be amazed at all of the interesting things your child will learn in the coming months. I look forward to communicating with you throughout the year and getting to know you and your child better.
I am a Highly Qualified teacher, certified in History and English/Language Arts, with an endorsement in Reading. I am currently enrolled in the online program at the University of West Alabama and will have my Master's in the Art of Teaching degree by summer.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher. Recognized as the gold standard in teacher certification, the National Board believes higher standards for teachers mean better learning for students.
The founding mission of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is to advance the quality of teaching and learning by:
- Maintaining high and rigorous standards for what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do;
- Providing a national voluntary system certifying teachers who meet these standards;
- Advocating related education reforms to integrate National Board Certification in American education and to capitalize on the expertise of National Board Certified Teachers.
There are Five Core Propositions that underscored the accomplished teacher’s commitment to advancing student achievement. Together, the propositions form the basis of all National Board Standards and the foundation for National Board Certification.
Proposition 1: Teachers are committed to students and their learning.
Proposition 2: Teachers know the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students.
Proposition 3: Teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning.
Proposition 4: Teachers think systematically about their practice and learn from experience.
Proposition 5: Teachers are members of learning communities.
