5th Grade Welcome Letter


Hi! I can’t believe I am about to begin another year of teaching here at Olive Chapel! This will be my 6th year, and I can’t imagine being part of a better team!

Besides teaching, one of the most important things to me is my family! My husband and I moved to Apex 14 years ago and started our family here. We have two sons, Riley and Jax, and a german shepherd named Eli. Our oldest son will start 7th grade this August, and our youngest is in 3rd grade here at OCE. 

One of the things we love most is to travel and experience new things. Since we’ve been limited on travel lately (understatement of the century), we’ve been filling our time with new things to do at home. We’ve taken cooking to a new level, and have made it a family affair. We have also completed virtual 5ks, gone for bike rides, and created a few dance videos. 

In addition to these activities, I love to read. Most students know me as a HUGE Harry Potter fan. It might be my favorite series EVER, but I also love to read other fantasy novels, realistic fiction, and historical fiction. I may be the math teacher, but reading is a passion too. Since I live in Apex, there is a good chance I’ll bump into you at a soccer game, Target, or one of the other many places in town.
