I am currently an Instructional Content Facilitator and Literacy specialist. I have taught in a classroom for over 8 years and love my new position working with students and teachers.
I love being creative and working with small groups. I have always taught at Title One Schools and love the challenge and dedication of my students!
Have worked on many committees and groups to help develop common core strategies for my County. I have been a collaborator on several published books as well as being featured on websites and resource pages focusing on my lessons.
I have always wanted to be a teacher. My mother was a teacher assistant while I was in Elementary School, and I was always "That Kid" who finished early and would "wander" the room trying to help everyone else...although at the time it was not appreciated. I started my college career at Coastal Carolina University where I was a cheerleader, then headed to UNC-Charlotte where I got my undergrad in Elementary Education and Master's Degree in Literacy
I have been married for almost 9 years to my wonderful husband Andrew. We have a beautiful daughter Lilly Drew (6), a son Landry (3) and a baby girl Finleigh (1)
