Hi! I have had the pleasure of teaching K-2 since August 2007. I have a stong passion for equal education for ALL students, combined with a big heart for children, and the patience to teach others.  I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (K-6) at East Carolina University.  My heart has always belonged to the primary grades because I believe that it's important to set a foundation to inspire students during the beginning years of a their development. Can't wait to meet you!

I also LOVE polka dots and all things pink.
