Degrees and Certifications:
This will be my second year teaching 5th grade at Sherrills Ford Elementary and I absolutely love it! I teach English Language Arts and Social Studies. This is my 8th year teaching. I previoulsy taught 3rd grade in another county.
I grew up in Huntersville, North Charlotte, and South Charlotte. I attended UNC Chapel Hill (Go Tarheels!) for my freshman year of college and then transferred to UNC Charlotte to be closer to home and my family. My bachelor's degree is in Elementary Education. After teaching for 3 years, I returned to UNC Charlotte for my Master's in Reading Education.
Reading is my passion. There is so much I want to see and experience in my lifetime, and it's not possible to do it all. I love getting to go to new places, experience new things, and take on new roles through the characters of a book. I also love to learn and learn so much from reading daily. My hope is that all students will love to read and will find enjoyment from reading. I also want them to remain curious and to be lifelong learners.
Outside of teaching I enjoy reading, crafting, remodeling, decorating, exercising, and traveling.
