Teaching and working with children is truly a passion for me! I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Laurel Park has been my home for 4 years and I am thrilled to be here and to be working with a fabulous 2nd grade team. Prior to Laurel Park I taught in SC. When my children were born I was very blessed to stay home with them for several years. When I entered the teaching world again I taught in Chatham County for 8 years then moved to Wake County. I have been teaching 2nd grade for 12 years and I love it! I have also taught kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and children with special needs but 2nd grade is my favorite! I continue to take classes and workshops each year to keep my teaching fresh and exciting. I got my degree from Francis Marion University, a small school in SC.

I am originally from SC but have lived in NC for 12 years. Before moving here I lived in Ohio and Arkansas, too. I have 2 children and a cat. My children are my son, Skylar who is 22 and in his last year of engineering school at NC State. My daughter Madeline is 17. She will be in the 12th grade at Apex High School this year.They will both be graduating in the spring/summer of 2017. Then there is my cat and her name is Izzy, actually Isabella but we call her Izzy.

In my spare time I love to read, shop, bake, and be outside whether it is with friends and family , somewhere listening to music, attending a sporting event or just hanging out.
