I am so excited to be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year. I began my career 26 years ago here at Oak Ridge. My experience includes teaching both kindergarten and first grade. While you have been your child’s teacher for the past 5 years, I look forward to partnering with you to ensure that your child’s kindergarten experience is fun and productive. My belief is that all children can learn. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education K-6 from the University of NC at Greensboro (Go Spartans). In addition, I graduated from NC A&T State University (Aggie Pride) with a Master of Science degree in Elementary Education. I am a NC Teacher Leader. I believe in the use of developmental play activities corresponding with a rigorous academic setting that encourages optimum growth. I am married to Kevin and have a daughter, Inez, who will be in the third grade this year. Fall is my favorite season. I am a huge Carolina Panthers and NFL fan. Talk to me about football anytime. Thank you in advance for sharing your child with me!
