Welcome to Dixon and 1st grade!
I was raised an Air Force brat and was fortunate to move around the country as I grew up. While I loved moving every few years, it's nice to be settled in Eastern North Carolina. My family and I love living near the beach and spending as much time as possible on the water. We have a little girl who constantly keeps us on our toes. I enjoy being active, creating teacher resources, going to the beach, and paddleboarding. I love watching sports, especially the East Carolina Pirates. I'm slowly turning into a Florida State fan thanks to my husband.
I received my B.S. in Elementary Education as well as MAEd. in Reading Education from East Carolina University. I recently completed my School Administration Licensure from UNC-Wilmington. I began my teaching career in the Rowan- Salisbury School System as a 3rd-5th Grade Title I Math teacher. I then moved to Onslow County where I began teaching 1st grade. While in the classroom I also taught 2nd grade and from 2013-2017 I was an instructional coach for the school system. I am very excited to be back in the classroom as a first grade teacher!
