I am an Ohio girl, living in North Carolina. I have been teaching for 9 years. My favorite grade to teach has been first grade. I love the age and curriculum.
I like to think of myself as a high energy and fun teacher! My goal every year is to enrich my students minds and help them fall in love with learning.
2013 "Above and Beyond" award from my school. 2013 Teacher of the Year nominee. The best award is from my students telling me I am "the best teacher ever."
I attended Mount Union in Alliance, OH for my bachelor's. I am currently finishing my Reading Recovery certification.
I try to stay involved in my school community. I am on the School Leadership Team. I serve on the Field Day Committee. I represent my school on the Science Teacher Leadership Council for our district. I am a member of the Digital Army. In the Spring, I coach the Girls on the Run team for our school. I have been a volunteer at the Royal Family Kids Camp for the last 10 years. I also serve on my developments Home Owners Association. Throughout the year I also volunteer with our local Kiwanis.
