I am thrilled to be part of the fifth grade team here at Leesville Elementary School. I grew up in eastern North Carolina in Mount Olive. I was a NC Teaching Fellow and graduated with a double major in Elementary Education and Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I also have a Masters degree in Education from Georgia State University. In addition, I have an endorsement in Gifted Education and Reading and I am Reading Recovery trained. I taught in grades K, 1, 2, and 3 in schools in Atlanta, GA, Durham county and Wake county. I also have worked at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a reading coach for teachers in a reading research project in rural schools across the country. My husband David and I live in the Leesville area with our three children and dog. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, playing tennis, cheering on the Tar Heels.
