About: I have been teaching at Washington since 2001. I started as a resource teacher and have worked with K-5 grades. One of my claims to fame is that I have had classrooms on every floor of the school building! I love teaching kids and learning all kinds of new things in the process of being an educator. My own education began at Carrboro Elementary School. I graduated from Chapel Hill High School and then left North Carolina to go to Grinnell College in a little farm town in Iowa. I studied abroad in Zimbabwe and loved exploring southern Africa. After I graduated, I got my first teaching job at the Wright School in Durham. When I decided to get my master's degree in teaching, I headed out to the University of Oregon for two years. While I was out west, I developed a love for hiking and exploring the beautiful forests in our country. One of my lifelong dreams came true when I got the chance to take my daughter Naomi to Sequoia National Park in California. We slept under the towering 300 year old giant trees. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach Washington's wizards!
