My name is Tracey Lynn Felton. I have been an educator for 25 years. I earned a bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Hampton University. I earned a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, with a focus on Administration from McDaniel College. I also earned a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Reading, from Grand Canyon University. In addition, I have completed doctoral coursework at Walden University and Grand Canyon University. I have taught grades 2-8. Currently, I teach 6th grade English. For the past 9 years, I have been an adjunct professor at Trinity Washington University, teaching principals, assistant principals, instructional deans and teachers courses for their certification and re-certification. Over the course of my career I have been successful with students and parents. One of my passions is helping struggling learners experience success. I have done this through creating an engaging classroom where students of varying levels feel empowered and are encouraged to learn. I began mentoring my colleagues over 15 years ago. I have been the supervising teacher for college students in their student teaching process. Once I began mentoring and teaching teachers, I realized that I had a passion for helping teachers to become more effective. This passion is an outgrowth of my primary passion which is helping students to realize their full educational potential. In sharing my knowledge with teachers I have an impact on students far beyond my classroom .
