Second Grade Track 1
I am very excited to be returning to OCE this year! Let me tell you a little about myself. I grew up thinking I would become a doctor (because I'd always enjoyed science in school) but a volunteer tutoring job changed my mind. I realized I loved being a learner and I also loved helping others learn! I attended UNC Chapel Hill and graduated in 2008 with my degree in Elementary Education. In 2011 I went back to UNC-CH (go tarheels!) and earned my Master's in Education for Experienced Teachers with a focus in Literacy. This is my tenth year of teaching. I was an Eagle at Estes Hills Elementary in Chapel Hill for four years, then a Chameleon for two years at Carpenter Elementary in Cary, and now I'm honored to be a Clipper at Olive Chapel. My husband, Keith, and I have a little girl named Teagan and a fluffy dog named Tate. We enjoy hiking, watching sports, traveling, reading books, and playing board games.
