I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in History.   I am certified to teach Kindergarten through sixth grade.

In August 2009, I began working on my Master's Degree at UNCW.  In July 2011, I completed the Master's program and now hold a Master's Degree in Elementary Education.

In November 2013, I became a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of Early Childhood Generalist.

My mission is to be a positive role model for my students by being fair, kind, and helpful and instilling in them a love of being a life-long learner.

 

Experience

After graduating from UNCW, I taught in Pender County for four years.  I taught kindergarten for two years and first grade for two years.

In August 2008, I began teaching kindergarten at Richlands Primary School.  The 2018-2019 school year will be my eleventh year at RPS (now Heritage) and my fifteenth year overall of teaching.

I was selected as Richlands Primary School's 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year.

 

Biography

I was born and raised in Richlands.  I went to Richlands Elementary School, Trexler Middle School, and Richlands High School.  I graduated from Richlands High School in 2000. 

I have lived in Richlands for the majority of my life.  I lived in Wilmington, NC for eight years.

I am very close to my family and I spend a lot of time with them.  I have a five year old nephew that brings so much joy to my life.

I love to travel.  Some of my favorite places I have traveled to are: Japan (I have been twice); Texas (Austin and San Antonio); New York City; Washington D.C.; and Charleston, SC.  I also like to go to the North Carolina mountains and to the beach.

In June of 2010, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Japan as a part of my graduate school program.  While there, I was able to visit schools and see how their education system compares to ours.  It was an amazing experience and I enjoy sharing what I learned with my students.
