This is my 27th year teaching and my 7th year at Gamewell! I have taught kindergarten for 16 years. I am a graduate of West Caldwell High School and attended Gamewell Elementary and Middle as a child. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 1994 with my Bachelors in Elementary Education and graduated from Gardner Webb University in 1999 with my Master's Degree. I also received my National Board Certification in 2001.
I am married to Jason. We have a daughter, Bethan, who is 23. Bethany graduated from Meredith College and lives in Raleigh. We have two dogs, Kibbles and Sassy.
We are a very busy family, we enjoy visiting Raleigh, traveling, and watching sports.
I love teaching and strive to make my classroom a fun, active learning environment with learning centers, small groups, whole group, and independent activities. I believe children are filled with potential.
I look forward to watching these kinders grow, learn, and develop!
