Degrees and Certifications:
I am a 2nd grade teacher at Pleasant Grove Elementary and have over 12 years of teaching experience in Wake County. I grew up in Buffalo, New York and received my B.S. degree in Elementary Education from the State University of New York at Fredonia. While in college I competed on the Track and Cross Country teams, and still enjoy running in my free time. I moved to North Carolina in 2002 to pursue a teaching career and escape the long, snowy winters. I met my husband in Raleigh and they now have two wonderful children, Ava and Michael. We enjoy traveling, visiting community parks & playgrounds, and exploring the local museums. Ava will be a second grader at Pleasant Grove this year, and Michael will begin kindergarten. I am eager to work with you and your child during the 2017-2018 school year. Together we can continue to build a strong learning community at Pleasant Grove Elementary!
