Degrees and Certifications:
Hey, Friends!! I am not actually a Jacksonville native, but Jacksonville has been where I have called home for the last 14 years.
I graduated from Southwest High School (Go Stallions!) before going on to Coastal Carolina Community College for my Associate's of Arts degree and finally to University of North Carolina Wilmington to obtain my Bachelor's of Arts in Elementary Education. I am going back to UNCW this fall to learn more about AIG and gifted students!
This is my fourth year teaching and I could not be more excited about teaching at Southwest Elementary School! I was extremely lucky to spend time with the staff and students here throughout my journey at UNCW and fell in love with the school and atmosphere. Most of my time was spent in first grade with some amazing teachers!!
I am ecstatic about starting a new school year in Second Grade!
When I am not at school, I spend time with my family. My husband, Alex, and I have two minis, Riley and Rowan. Riley will be eight this year and likes to keep me on my toes! He will also be in second grade with me!
Rowan is one year old and LOVES anything with an engine and wheels.
I also have three dogs. Zoe is the oldest at 12 years old, she is the smallest of them all (she is a chiahuahua mix). Baloo is almost 7 years old and is our largest Great Dane. Finally, Akela is our youngest Great Dane, at almost 5 years old!
We have also embarked on a new journey, taking care of chickens!
