• I am so excited to be in my fourth year at Claxton Elementary! I decided to enter the field of teaching after volunteering in classrooms while being a stay-at-home mom. I received my Master of Arts in Teaching and have been very fortunate to work at such a welcoming and warm school. My classroom mirrors that same warm environment because I value each child and strive to create a nurturing environment where students feel supported and loved. I challenge each child at his or her level and hope to start a love of learning that will foster a strong academic career.

    When away from the classroom, I spend most of my time attending sporting events and transporting my children to their various activities. My children are now 16, 14, and 12 and I also have three stepchildren of those same ages.  I enjoy exercising and love dining out with my husband. Our family looks forward to summertime beach trips and we frequently travel back to New Jersey to visit both of our families.
