I have taught for 13 years, 8 years in North Carolina and 5 years in Virginia.
I love a classroom that is filled with a sense of freedom of expression, collaborative learning, and open discussion. My classroom feels more like a coffee shop most days. I hope it is a place where my students want to be and feel they can settle into being their best selves.
