Welcome to Mrs. Freeman's page. In 2000, I followed my youngest child to kindergarten and became a classroom mom at General Greene Elementary School of Science and Technology. While I was at Greene, I became a tutor for students in grades 3-5. Along the way, I worked as a teacher’s assistant; served as an officer on the PTA; and, acted as a representative on the Greene Leadership Team. This experience gave me a more personal view of the tireless, and often thankless, work that teachers perform.
It was through my experience at General Greene that I sensed that God was calling me to teach. So, I ran. As doors from my prior career began to close, I knew I had to answer God’s call. In 2009, I received a scholarship to return to school to receive a degree in elementary education. I received that degree in 2011 and decided to pursue Montessori Certification. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, a Lower Elementary Certification for Montessori, and STEM training from NASA. I have been teaching as a certified teacher since 2011. To date, I have taught every grade level, K-5, in elementary school.
My goal as a teacher is for my students to reach their highest potentials. As an avid reader, I hope each student will fall in love with reading as well as recognize the transforming power of words. In this technological age in which we find ourselves, the ability to think critically and harness creativity continue to be two of the most important skills students can develop. Yet, a compassion for reading, critical thinking, and creativity will only thrive when students work hard, understand boundaries, and show respect. As a professional and an individual I believe in working hard to excel.
