My love of learning inspired me to pursue a degree in education. After earning my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from USC Upstate in 2003, I began my teaching career with Caldwell County Schools at Valmead Elementary. I have had the privilege of being part of Sawmills Elementary since 2004. While at Sawmills, I have taught both 2nd and 3rd grade. During this time, I discovered a passion for helping students learn how to read. So, I decided to continue my education through Appalachian State University, earning a Master of Arts in Reading Education. I love seeing students' faces when reading finally clicks. I enjoy what I do and my mission is to make my classroom a safe place where students can learn while having fun. Together, with a team of amazing and creative teachers, I am committed to providing your child with the best learning experience possible.
