I have worked in the Onslow County School system since 2000, this will be my 20th year working with elementary students in our district. I worked as a teaching assistant at Jacksonville Commons Elementary while attending UNCW to gain my Elementary Education license, and then began teaching at Jacksonville Commons Elementary in 2002. I taught there (both 3rd and 4th grades) for 8 years. While teaching at JCE, I also obtained my AIG Certification for grades K-12, as well as Teacher Mentor certification. In 2010 I transferred to Parkwood to teach 3rd grade, and have enjoyed every mintue of it! In 2011 I received my National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist (ages 7-12 year olds), and in May 2017 I received my Masters Degree in Language and Literacy from UNCW. During the 2019/20 school year, I was honored to be named the Teacher of the Year for our school. I have represented Parkwood as our district Instructional Framework Champion for two years, working with other represenatives from around the county to implement the district-wide Instructional Framework initiative.
I am a native of Jacksonville, spent my entire childhood and school years here (JHS graduate), and then spent a few years at Chapel Hill, in Virginia, and in Raleigh before moving back to Jacksonville to start my family and my teaching career. I have three children: Emily (UNC Wilmington School of Nurisng), Justin (recent UNC Chapel Hill graduate) and Jackson (7th grade at NWPMS). I also have 3 step children: Jacob (working adult), Ethan (working adult), and Eliza (11th grade at JHS).
And of course, I have two fur-babies (dogs), Luna and Charlie, as well as a grand-dog Maggie :)
