Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Parents and Community,
I look forward to building relationships with students, as well as teachers, parents and members of the community in order to provide a well-rounded education for all the students here at Jamestown Elementary.
I served as an assistant principal and a teacher in Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools, and I began my teaching career as a fifth-grade teacher at Fairview Elementary in High Point. I received my bachelor degree in elementary education from Winston-Salem State University and earned my master of school administration from Appalachian State University.
I served as principal of Aurelian Springs Elementary School in Halifax County from 2011 to 2015. The school’s composite proficiency scores increased by nine percentage points last year, and suspensions decreased by 35 percent over a four-year period.
I’ve always had a desire to work in this area, Guilford County Schools. My fifth grade teacher, Ms. Smith at Vandalia Elementary, is the one who inspired me to teach. She helped me and all her students be successful in school by taking an interest in what motivated us.
I like to provide students with challenges, competition and collaboration – the opportunity to work together. One of the challenges in education today is that the diversity of students continues to change so educators have to continue to research more appropriate strategies for them to be successful.
When I am not at work, I enjoy playing and watching sports. I especially like golf, but I admit I am better as an administrator than golfer. I like to read and I always take a book with me when I travel.
