Hi! I grew up in Washington State, but spent many summer days in Montana. (Bestill my heart!) I taught for in Spokane, WA before marrying a Marine and moving all over the country. 20 years later, we have lived in seven different states. We have 2 amazing daughters. My 18 year old is currently taking classes at Coastal Carolina Community College and will be moving to NC State in January 2021. My 15 year old daughter is a Sophomore at Richlands High School. We are enjoying our time in North Carolina and always open for new adventures!
I strive to create a classroom environment where my students feel comfortable to grow, participate, and succeed. I desire for my students to know thier success may look different than their peers' success because everyone has their own strengths. I want my students to dig deeper into learning and go beyond the surface questions. I aim to meet my students at their ability levels and learning styles to help them reach individual goals. Most of all, I want my students to know learning is not a race with a finish line, but a never ending journey with great rewards.
