I am so excited to be starting another year in the forest and see the children coming back on campus. Not only am I the Instructional Coach, I am also the 3rd Grade Dual Language Immersion resource teacher this year. I get the best of both worlds by being able to do what I love to do best.....teach the teachers and teach the students. My experience ranges in over twenty years in second, fourth, fifth, and third grade classrooms in Virginia, Hawaii, and North Carolina.
Originally, I am from a rural town in northern Indiana and graduated from Indiana State University. I loved growing up on a farm in the snow and being able to spend days sledding down the hills when we didn't have school. Those days have long since passed, and I find myself here in North Carolina enjoying the sand. I have two daughters, Mackenzie is a fifth grader at CFIE, and Madeline is a seventh grader at NWPM. My husband is a Marine and we continue to follow the endeavor that brings. I have two French Bulldogs I am obsessed with and talk about all the time. I love smooshed faced doggies!! My family and I enjoy camping, hiking, being on the water, and anything outdoors.
I am looking forward to a rewarding, engaging year with the students!! Bring on 20-21!!
