I have been teaching first grade in Robertson county for 22 years.  My first 12 years were at Robert F. Woodall Elementary School in White House. In 2008 I joined the staff of Coopertown Elementary School.  I have two undergraduate degrees. My first degree is from The University of Tennessee. I earned my second degree a BS in Education from Western Kentucky University, with an endorsement in Early Childhood Development. I can't imagine any career that would be more rewarding and feel honored to be a teacher.


With our first progress reports coming out I would like to share a poem that hopefully will help us stop and think about what our kiddos are doing:
A WORD TO PARENTS
"I got two "A's" the small boy cried.
His voice was filled with glee.
His father very bluntly asked,
"Why didn't you get three?"

"Mom, I've got the dishes done!"
The girl called from the door.
Her mother very calmly said,
"And did you sweep the floor?"

"I've mowed the grass," the tall boy said,
"And put the mower away!"
His mother asked him with a shrug,
"Is that all you've done today?"

The children in the house next door
seem happy and content.
The same things happened over there,
but this is how it went.

"I got two A's, the small boy cried.
His voice was filled with glee.
His father proudly said, "That's great!
I'm glad you live with me!"

"Mom, I've got the dishes done!"
The girl called from the door.
Her mother smiled and softly said,
"Each day I love you more."

"I've mowed the grass," the tall boy said,
"And put the mower away!"
His mother answered with much joy,
"You've made me so happy today!"

Children desire a little praise,
for tasks they're asked to do.
If they're to lead a happy life,
so much depends on you.
