The 2011-2012 school year will be my seventh year teaching. I began in first grade, moved the second grade, and then to third grade. I then moved back to second grade and will remain in second grade for the 2011-2012 school year.
I believe in using student directed learning as much as possible.

In 2004, I earned my BS in Family and Community Services from East Carolina University. In 2005, I completed earning my K-5 Teaching Certification. In 2010 I earned my master's in Elementary Education from East Carolina University.
I grew up in Northeastern North Carolina and attended college at East Carolina University upon graduation from high school. I earned my Bachelor's degree, but was still undecided about my career path in life until spending some time volunteering in After School programs. The rest, as they say, is history.
