Eighteen years! Sixteen in 4th grade and two years in first!!
I believe that all students can learn and I try to find creative ways to engage them daily.
I am a Level 2 Google Certified Educator. I am also a SMART Certified Lesson Developer. I was Teacher of the Year for my school in 2014-2015. In 2004, I was the Wal-Mart teacher of the year for my county. This was a HUGE honor because I was nominated by a student.
I graduated from Campbell University in 2002, where I earned my BS degree in Elementary Education. I received my MAeD in Instructional Technology from East Carolina University in 2006.
I have an amazing husband, Chris, and an awesome son, Blake, who is eight. I have 2 cats and 3 dogs (a maltese, a malamute, and a mixed breed dog). I am a Christian and I thank God every day for the many blessings He provides. I love my family, friends, and career.
