I taught first grade for 6 months when I took over for a retired teacher. This was my first teaching job and I only had 8 students so I was in heaven. I taught third grade math for two years and this year I will be teaching third grade literacy. I am excited for a new challenge!
I try to always be upbeat and smiling around my students. I believe in positive reinforcement over punishment. My goal is to make learning fun for all students!

I graduated from East Rowan High School in 2009 and went on to graduate at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2012 with a bachelor's in Elementary Education and a concentration in Social Studies.
I began working with children when I was in high school and had a job as an after school/camp counselor at the YMCA. I have always loved working with children and it is my goal to set them up for success in life. I want my students to enjoy learning and I try to always make it fun for them. I recently got married to my best friend, Matt, and we just bought our first house! We have a miniature poodle named Peyton and a Labrador retriever named Boone. We also have a turtle named Myrtle! I recently changed school districts and I am excited to see what the 2015-2016 school year has in store! I enjoy making Smartboards so be on the lookout for more! I currently have quite a bit of math stuff, but now that I will be teaching third grade literacy and social studies, there are more Smartboards to come. :)
