I teach math and science to the fourth grade students on our team. I am a graduate of Appalachian State University and this is my twenty-eighth year of teaching. I have taught here at Oak Ridge Elementary School for the past twelve years. I have four wonderful boys ranging in age from 21 to 8! I love working with children and seeing them learn and grow with their academics, work habits, and independence. I strive to make my classroom a safe, comfortable place where students can take risks and learn from their mistakes. I look forward to a fantastic school year!
