I have taught for 13 years. I taught 3rd grade and 2nd grade for 6 years each, and now I am teaching 6th grade.
My teaching style is eclectic! I integrate everything to create a deeper experience for my students. With everything from math games, dancing, reading, writing to music, every day is a new experience.
Smart Technologies Exemplary Educator, BRES Teacher of Year, North Carolina Governor's Teacher Network Teacher
I attended Appalachian State University to get my Elementary Education degree and my masters as a Literacy Specialist. I am also National Board certified in reading.
I love anything that inspires creativity in me as an educator, and inspires thinking and learning in my students. Learning is fun!
