Degrees and Certifications:
I was born in Wilmington, NC. My father was in construction so our family moved a lot during my childhood. By the time I graduated high school, I had attended seven schools. I know what it is like to be the “new kid” in the class. My siblings and cousins loved playing school and I loved playing the role of the teacher. My favorite teacher was my 4th grade teacher Ms. Karns, because of her I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up.
I’ve been teaching for 16 years. Fifteen of those years have been in 2nd grade. I am honored to be a part of my students’ lives. I hope to inspire them to one day become a teacher themselves, whether it be in the classroom or a leader in their community.
I am very excited for the 2020-2021 school year! I know it will look different than we are used to, but I know we will have fun while we learn all the great things that 2nd grade has to offer. In our classroom we have 2 guinea pigs as class pets. Their names are Snowball and Sweetie! You will see them during some of our lessons or morning meetings.
My hobbies include; reading, spending time with our two grandsons, Atticus and Holden, and walking our three dogs Dori, Jack and Ben, and playing with our cat Happy.
