I have been teaching upper elementary students for 7 years. My experience is in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. I currently teach 5th grade at a nature school with a Basic School philosophy. ✌
I believe in providing the necessary tools for empowering and inspiring all students. I love incorporating real word and nature connections into my classroom. I believe in data-driven, meaningful instruction and holding students accountable for their learning.
I am currently working on my National Board Certification.
I received my Bachelors in Education with a concentration in Sociology and minor in Women's and Gender Studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
Outside of school, you can find me at home with my family and pets (two cats and a dog), at a yoga class, or at a music festival.
