Maya Angelou once said “try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud “and I have always taken my opportunity as a teacher to make my students confident in their ability and be the special little person that they are. Like a rainbow, students are just as special. I am looking forward to having a lot of rainbows in my class this year.

I have been in education since 2004 and have been at Vandora Springs from the very beginning. I have found a home not only at Vandora but also in first grade. I have a Business degree from Pitt Community College and an Education degree with a minor in Math from Grand Canyon University.

I come from a family of 4 girls, and I have a very sweet daughter of my own. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am wishing all my space cadets a happy and successful school year.
