I am very excited to begin my 1st year here at Joyner Elementary School. The staff has welcomed me with open arms and have been so kind and generous. The overall environment here is amazing and I am so happy to be apart of such an amazing school.

At a young age, my family and I moved from Baltimore Maryland to a very small town called Halifax N.C. Being an only child in a neighborhood without any other children or family around I was forced to use my imagination quite frequently. I would often pile up any stuff animal, or any object for that matter, on my floor and teach to them. So when people ask how long have I wanted to be a teacher and I reply, “Since I was a little girl” I’m not kidding!

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Development and Family Studies in 2010 from the wonderful North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University! (AGGIE PRIDE) I then continued my education at Capella University, receiving a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have been teaching Pre-K for the last 7 years and I feel that I have one of the best jobs there is. Seeing children develop and grow at this age is so wonderful! I LOVE what I do and I’m looking forward to an exciting year!
