I am so excited to be teaching for the 2nd year at Southwest Elementary School. I have been teaching for 17 years at the elementary level, following earning bachelor's degrees in English and Education from Salem College. I have 2 master's degrees; one in curriculum and instruction from Memphis University where I began my career, and the other in academically gifted from Elon University. I love working with children and seeing their joy of learning develop. I look forward to another great year in 2nd grade.
