     I began my educational journey at ABAC, where I received my associate of education degree.  After ABAC, I atteneded VSU where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education, and my Masters of Science in Early Childhood Education.

                 TSS- to help me work with new teachers.                                                

                  Gifted Endorsement-so that I can better serve my classroom.
