I am so excited to be back this year and part of the LES community again! This is my 15th year of teaching with most of those years here at Leesville Elementary School. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, ESL and I am adding AIG this year. I am looking forward to this new journey with the AIG community and looking forward to continuing my ESL journey with the 3-5 grade ESL students. I am a graduate of Meredith College with a degree in Psychology and a K-6 teaching certification. I am ESL certified and working on my AIG certification.
I have two awesome children; a son who is a sophomore at NC State (GO PACK!) and a daughter who is a senior at Leesville. My family has been a part of the Leesville community since my son entered Kindergarten and I wouldn't have it any other way! I love to listen to music which works out nicely because I have a very musical family. My son plays guitar, my daughter sings and my husband plays the drums. I don't currently play any instruments which makes me the oddball out but I love to listen to them create music! I also love reading, doing crossfit, traveling, visiting Lake Gaston, and watching my daughter play softball!
