About the Teacher

  • Welcome to 4th Grade!!

    I am so excited to learn with your child this year! I am teaching the math portion of 4th grade team of Foster & Albrecht. We work very closely with our parents to meet the needs of our awesome students. Our math focus at ORE is the Eureka Program. It is a way of learning MANY strategies to become stronger problem solvers. The program is a scaffold of skills starting in kindergarten. I am in the 5th year of the program and am amazed at the way our students can solve complex problems using mental math!! 

    I received my degree from the University of NC at Wilmington and still enjoy the beach as my favorite vacation destination! I am in my 27th year of teaching, with most of my experience in kindergarten/1st grade, and also in 3rd grade. I have earned my National Board Certification twice. I have 2 children: my son attends UNCC as a Junior and my daughter attends UNCW as a freshman. I enjoy all outside activities, with sports being a huge part of my life. 

    Here are more facts about myself in 3rd grade math problems to solve! Have fun!

    My age: 2 X (5 X 5) + 3.

    My birth month: 121 ÷ 11 .

    My birth day: 48 ÷ 2.

    The years I have taught at ORE: (8 X 2) + 1.

    The number of pets I own: 96 ÷ 96. {She is a yellow lab and her name is Sunshine ... or Sunny for short!}


    I love learning and am looking forward to a full year of learning with you!
