Welcome to first grade! I am looking forward to an exciting school year.
This is my 16th year teaching. I began my teaching career in Minnesota, where I taught for 3 years. After moving to North Carolina I taught at Lawsonville Elementary for 9 years. When my daughter was born, I wanted to move to GCS before she started Kindergarten, since we live in the district. I began my first year in GCS at Southern Elementary in Greensboro. Although it was a great school, I was looking for something closer to home and daycare. So the following year I transferred to Pilot in Greensboro, which was only minutes away from daycare. I had planned on staying there for a while; however, a wonderful opportunity arose to come to Oak Ridge. Now I am minutes away from home and my daughter. I have taught all grades K-6 with the exception of 5th grade.
I graduated with my bachelor's degree from University of Wisconsin - River Falls. I also hold a master's degree in Reading Education form Appalachian State University.
