I have been teaching for more that 20 years—all in Forsyth County Schools. I love teaching first grade! I am a former Forsyth County Teacher of the Year, and was a finalist for the 2010 Georgia Teacher of the Year. I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Wayne State University in Detroit, an Education Specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee, and a Doctor of Education degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Liberty University. Kids usually call me “Doctor B.”. I look forward to a wonderful year! “I call my students ‘my kids’ because in our year together, they aren’t just kids on my class list. They become a part of my heart.” Author Unknown
