This is my 23rd year teaching and my fourth year at Gamewell! I have taught kindergarten for 11 years. I am a graduate of West Caldwell High School, Appalachian State University, and Gardner Webb University.
I am married to Jason. We have a nineteen-year-old daughter, Bethany, and two dogs, Kibbles and Sassy. Bethany is a sophomore at Meredith College in Raleigh.
We are a very busy family, we enjoy visiting Raleigh and attending sporting events.
I enjoy 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.
The greatest joy of teaching is watching children develop and grow to reach their full potential.
I look forward to the wonderful progress your child will make this year!
