This is my 12th year teaching in the public school system. I have also taught in a private school for three years. I attended Lenior-Rhyne University where received a B.A. in Elementary Education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I am currently working on my Masters of the Science of Curriculum and Instruction degree. I have taught all grades from Kindergarten to 4th grade. I was also Banoak's Math Interventionist during the 2015-2016 school year. This is my fifth year as Banoak's Robotic's team coach. I am very excited about the upcoming school year in Kindergarten.
I live in the Vale commnity with my husband, Bobby Petree of 21 years, and our four children. Our oldest daughter, Abigail, is a Sophomore at Catawba Valley Community College. Chloe is our second child and she is a Senior at Fred T. Foard High School. Our son, Ezekiel (aka Zeke) is a 9th grader at Fred T. Foard High School. Our youngest daughter, Phoebe, attends Banoak and she is in the 4th grade.
My dad was in the Air Force so I have lived in many different states and in Germany while growing up. As an older elementary age child, I traveled all over over Europe with my family and my Girl Scout troop. I graduated from Warren County Senior High School in McMinnville, TN. After I graduated from high school, I moved to North Carolina with my mom and five younger siblings.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and doing cross stitch. I am also a leader for a Girl Scout troop in the Vale area.
