Degrees and Certifications:
My passion for teaching began when I was a senior in high school. My school offered seniors the opportunity to tutor at the elementary schools and I was placed in a first grade classroom. Within the first couple of weeks of working with the children, I knew that being a teacher was the career I wanted to pursue.
I am married to my wonderful husband, Jonathan Dempsey. We have one son, Colton. He will be turning one this September. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, baking, and fishing.
I started my teaching career at Meadow View Elementary School in January 2010. This will be my 8th year teaching 2nd grade at MVES!
I received my Associate Degree from Coastal Carolina Community College in 2007. I then went to UNCW and obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Minor in Psychology. I graduated UNCW in 2009.
