    I am so happy you're here! I am excited and feel privileged to teach your sweet children, as well as work with you! While I know it can be a challenge for children to get into the “groove” of school again after the summer, my goal is to make this transition into 1st grade as smooth as possible. I have high expectations for learning, and I will challenge students daily to ensure growth. In my class, we will celebrate students trying, making mistakes and learning from them, and always strive to do our very best in all activities and classwork. I can assure you that I will do my best to support student learning and make this a great school year! I look forward to teaching your child and meeting with you at some point this year! Thank you for sharing your precious children with me! 

    A b o u t  M e I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I went to Lee University (Cleveland, TN), where I met my husband, Zachary. We’ve been married for 4 years.  Aside from being a teacher, my husband and I are the pastors of Triad Fellowship. This is my 4th year of teaching. I truly have a love and passion for education and I am so excited to help your child succeed!
