I am originally from Greenville, North Carolina and moved to Durham 11 years ago. I graduated from East Carolina University with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and my Master's Degree in Mathematics Education. I obtained National Board Certification serveral years ago as well. I have been teaching for 13 years, with 11 of them in 3rd grade. My lifelong dream was to be a teacher and I LOVE my job! There is nothing like seeing that "lightbulb" moment when a student learns something new! I love to sing, watch movies, read, and spend time with my family. I also love cheering on the ECU Pirates and the Durham Bulls! I am excited to be a Pleasant Grove Flyer!
