  • Welcome to the Wizarding World of fourth grade! I am so excited about being at Colfax Elementary this year! This is my 18th year in education. I am looking forward to an awesome year with your child. We will work hard and have a lot of fun. 

    I received my undergraduate degree in Communications and Journalism from N.C. State University. I went on to East Carolina University, where I received my teaching certificate. I completed the AG licensure program at Elon University in 2018, and received my M.Ed from Elon University in 2019. 

    Here is a little bit about me. I am married and have one son. He is a freshman at N.C. State. He plays golf and hockey. I also have two dogs, Murphy and Skinner. We live in High Point and enjoy cheering on the Southwest Cowboys!  

    I love sports! I am a huge Wolfpack fan! I also like the Atlanta Braves, Carolina Panthers, and Carolina Hurricanes. I like to cheer for professional teams where NC State athletes play. I would love to come and see your child play in their sports events!
