Degrees and Certifications:
I am originally from the Midwest, but lived in Virginia before I moved to North Carolina in 2006. I was a classroom teacher for 18 years, mostly recently in 1st grade. Teaching reading and writing are my passions, and I have always loved working with my English as a Second Language students. I recently decided to add the ESL certification to my teaching credentials, and am thrilled to be an ESL teacher, shared between Olive Chapel and Salem Elementary! My husband and I have two teenage daughters, Emma and Kate. We love to go to concerts and the beach, and to play with our puppies, Henry and Pippa!
