I have been working as a second grade teacher at Aversboro Elementary for all six years of my teaching career. I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2012 with an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. I moved to North Carolina from my birth state of Illinois to be closer to family and the beach! When I am not teaching, watching my students use their inquiring minds to grow into critical thinkers, I enjoy playing with my nephew and cuddling with my two dogs while reading a good book.
I have been teaching in North Carolina for 21 years. My husband and I moved to NC in 1997 where I started teaching 2nd grade in Harnett County for 3 years. In 2000, I transferred to Aversboro Elementary and haven't left! I taught first grade for one year and have spent the remaining years in reading intervention. I am originally from Rome, New York where I received my bachelor's in elementary education and my master's in reading. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and friends.
