• I am a wife and mom of four busy kids and this is my eighth year teaching! I started in 2008 at Northwoods Elementary in Jacksonville, NC with my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Florida. I taught 3rd grade and Kindergarten during the regular school years and 2nd grade through the summer school program. I received my Masters degree in Reading and Literacy in 2010 and in 2013, I moved into a focused reading position for Kindergarten.

    Our then family of 3, almost 4, moved to the Triad area as my husband transitioned out of the military in 2014. Though I took several years off from the regular classroom, I fostered my love of teaching and serving children by running the children’s ministry at my church. In 2018, I went back into the classroom as a part time reading tutor at our wonderful Jamestown Elementary when my oldest entered Kindergarten.

    I started teaching full time again in 2020 at JES. I knew that being in our school, with our children, in our community was where I needed to be!

    I am here for your child’s success. As we continue this learning journey together I am sure there will be a few twists and turns, please feel free to contact me for questions, comments, or concerns. I will return any calls, texts, or Class Dojos as soon as possible and am also available by email.

    We’re in this together, let’s have fun!
