Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in western North Carolina. After receiving my undergraduate degree in psychology and sociology from UNC-Asheville, I began my path of working with children. I started off in social work and then as a reading interventionist in an elementary school. I then spent a year and a half in Colombia, South America teaching English to both children and adults. That experience led to me wanting my own classroom.
I earned my masters degree in elementary education from UNC-Wilmington. After graduating, I taught in a dual language classroom in Wilmington,NC. Last year, my husband was offered a job in Charlotte. I taught in a 3rd grade class outside of Uptown. We then bought a home in Lake Wylie which brought me here. I am incredibly excited to be teaching 5th grade inquiry at Ebenezer this year.
