Experience

I began volunteer work at AES when my daughter started Kindergarten. I worked as a parent volunteer, substitute teacher, and ASC aide until 2007, when I graduated from JSU and was hired to teach third grade.



Bio

 My teaching philosophy is simple. I believe children have to know that you genuinely care about them before you can teach them anything. Secondly, they have a natural curiosity about the world around them. If I can spark this curiosity and guide it in the right direction, there are no limits to what they can achieve.
I have been married to Gary White since 1993. We have one daughter.  Ashville is my hometown. I graduated from AHS, so I feel a deep connection to the community and students here. We are members of New Haven Baptist Church. We live in Shoal Creek Valley.

 Having been a parent of a child at AES before I was a teacher here allows me to better see things from a parent perspective. I try to keep this in mind and use it to work more effectively with parents to help all of my students achieve success. Parent support and involvement is essential for a successful academic experience for your child. I strongly encourage you to take part in your child's learning. Get involved with our school in every way you can! Research shows that children perform better academically, are better behaved, and happier when parents are involved in their school. I think it is very important to stay in touch with parents throughout the school year, so please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or suggestions you may have.
Looking forward to a great school year!
