Subjects Taught

I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree from The University of South Alabama.


While I was completing my undergrad at USA, I worked in the child care field at a Mother's Day Out Program. I completed my Student teaching in 2004 from Leinkauf Elementary. I spent an entire year in Kindergarten while observing other grades, as well. 

After receiving my teaching certificate, I spent two years at Ella Grant Elementary teaching Kindergarten and Second grade. 

I taught Kindergarten at Hamilton Elementary for 4 years and taught 2nd grade for 2 years.

I have also been involved in after school tutoring and summer school programs.

I have been with the O'Rourke family for 6 years now teaching Kindergarten and I'm loving it!

I'm on my 14th year of teaching and I am grateful everyday to have the job that I have. The rewards are endless!


Welcome to Kindergarten! I have been teaching for 14 years. I have taught Kindergarten as well as second grade. I am married to my wonderful husband, Mark and I have a 16 year old daugter named Kylee. I absolutely love animals. I have a Chihuahua named Bambi, a Sun Conure (Loki), 2 tree frogs (Bonnie and Clyde),a leopard gecko named Bam Bam, a beta called Bishemon, and of course our class pet, Khaleesi Meatball the  golden hamster.

I am very excited to have your child in my class this year! I will work with you and your child to ensure success in your child's school career.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with me or send me an email. :) My planning time is 12:20-12:50, Monday-Friday. Please schedule any conferences in advance.

You can also reach me on REMIND. My class code is 99402.
