This is my 9th year teaching. All of them have been in Burke County. I just love being be a Bear. I have previously taught fifth grade, pre-k, and second grade. I feel that my history allows me to understand where the students start and where they will go in their education. I look forward to this amazing school year with you and your child! It is my mission to prepare students for success at the next level of education and in life. I am passionate about teaching and learning. I received my Master's degree in elementary literacy and reading several years ago. I share my love of reading with my students through helping them see the magic every book holds. When you read, you can go anywhere or be anything. The world is at your fingertips with a good book.
