About: I am so thrilled to be a part of the second grade team at Washington! I graduated from Elon University in 2017 with a major in Elementary Education and minor in Poverty and Social Justice. For the 2017-18 school year, I taught English through the Fulbright program in Taiwan. After returning to North Carolina in the fall of 2018, I taught fourth and first grades at Merrick-Moore Elementary School in Durham until the spring of 2021. I love to see student curiosity spark in the classroom. The best parts of teaching for me are creating classroom community, building critical thinking skills, and providing opportunities for experiential learning. When I’m not teaching, I love to volunteer at the Duke Lemur Center, read, travel, and play with my cat. I look forward to a wonderful year!
