As a school-wide enrichment teacher, Betty believes that creativity and imagination in young children must be developed and nurtured. Throughout her teaching career, Betty's most rewarding contribution has been her ability to find talent in every student and celebrate that talent by allowing each child to experience success. Betty's diverse teaching career includes experience in the classroom and in talented and gifted programs in grades pre-K through 9 in several states as well as in DoDDS Europe. She also teaches in graduate and undergraduate programs at the university level. A teacher for 25 years, Betty received her Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina.


"Today's classroom is a turbulent setting of diverse personalities, experiences, interest, talent, and cultures. Teachers must celebrate diversity within the classroom and create opportunities that allow every child to feel successful."
