Degrees and Certifications:
I began my teaching career with the Wake County Public School System in 1996 at Carver Elementary in Wendell. After taking time off to raise my children I worked as a Lead Preschool Teacher at Windborne United Methodist Preschool in Raleigh. Prior to joining Pleasant Grove Elementary, I worked the past six years as a Ready to Learn Facilitator at Jones Dairy Elementary and Lynn Road Elementary helping families prepare their children for Kindergarten.
My husband, Steve, and I reside in Raleigh with our 3 children. My son, Stephen, is a sophmore at UNC-Chapel Hill. My son, Aiden, is a sophmore at Millbrook High. My daughter, Arianne, is an 8th grader at Durant Road Middle. In my spare time I enjoy volunteer work through my church and children's scouting activities as well as taking vacations with my family. Our favorite destination is Walt Disney World.
Favorite Quote: "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But, for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood." -Mr. Fred Rogers
