I taught 4th grade for 3 years and am now teaching 5th grade at an amazing school! My college practicums gave me experience in all elementary grade levels.
EDUCATION IS MY ADVENTURE. PEOPLE ARE MY FOCUS. It is my hope that you sense a passion for learning in the things that I do. It is a life skill that continues on outside the classroom. I seek to build an engaging and encouraging environment that teaches my students to love to learn for themselves. Each day, we engage in hands-on activities, utilize lots of technology tools, and show off our creative sides. The reason I go into the classroom every day is to inspire my students to do their best and achieve whatever dreams they have. It all begins right here.

I enjoy traveling to different parts of the world and LOVE learning new cultures. I have stepped foot in seven countries and have many, many more on my list to visit! I have played the piano since I was in 4th grade, and I have a strong appreciation for music and the arts. I love to adventure outdoors: hiking, biking, kayaking, etc. I get an absolute thrill from finding some good deals at Goodwill. I have worked with specialty coffee for five years as a barista in the Greenville area. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends doing fun stuff! My favorite color is teal, and I have a slight obsession with anything concerning coffee or elephants.
