Welcome to OUR class!
This is my 6th year of teaching and my 3rd year at Lillington-Shawtown Elementary School. I enjoy teaching in the community in which I live because interacting with students outside of LSES creates many sweet moments; "No, I don't live and sleep at school!" Fostering connections with students and families also helps students succeed.
My husband and I have been married for 18 years and have three precious teenagers! I grew up in the Raleigh-Durham area and also raised my family in the wonderful state of Texas for six years. We have two very spoiled dogs, Oliver and Ruby.
I cherish the many relationships I have made here with teachers, families, and students! Teaching is definitely an adventure, as students bring their own personalities and unique contributions to class each day. I expect students to be KIND as they work daily to make themselves proud of their choices and academic successes.
I embrace each student's emotional and academic needs as I strive to help them reach their full potential through caring and engaging instruction.
I am looking forward to a FANTASTIC school year!
