• Thank you for stopping by to visit our first grade class  website where "All kids are gifted, some just open their packages earlier than others" (Michael Carr).    Just a little information about me.  I graduated from Shaw University with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and East Carolina University  with a Masters in Math and Language Arts.

    This will be my 18th year teaching.  I have taught high school, as well as 5th, 3rd, and currently 1st grade.

    In my spare time I enjoy reading inspirational books and spending time with my family.  I absolutely adore my grandson, Jesiah, he brings me so much JOY.
