I am so excited to be a part of Sawmills Elementary School! It's going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures.
I was born in Iowa but was raised in Raleigh. I went to UNCW and absolutely loved it, go Seahawks! I have my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-6, with a minor in Psychology. I received my National Boards Certification in 2003 in the area of Middle Childhood Generalist. My first job was in Raleigh where I received my Academically Gifted licensure and taught AIG for 7 years. While teaching AIG I discovered that I had a profound love for second grade and decided to make a change. I taught second grade for 6 years. In 2010 I moved to Granite Falls and began teaching AIG again at Collettsville, Oak Hill, and Gamewell Elementary. In 2015 I transferred to Sawmills Elementary and Granite Falls Elementary. I love teaching AIG and the bond I get to form with students as I see them progress through different grade levels. I know just where they're coming from and exactly where they need to be by the end of each school year. Be prepared, I will challenge them to reach for the stars!
I am so excited to be your teacher and look forward to a fantastic year! Please know that you can contact me anytime.
