I was born in New Bern and attended Ben D. Quinn Elementary, Grover C. Fields Middle, New Bern High and East Carolina University. I lived in the same house from the day I came home from the hospital until I left for college in 2004. I have the best husband and son I could ask for. We enjoy spending time together with family and friends.
I realized I wanted to be a teacher in Kindergarten. My teacher was Mrs. Fox and I adored her!! She was so loving and kind and always made learning fun. I have never wanted to do anything else but teach. I have only had one job that I did not work with children and that was working in the front office at Ben D. Quinn in High School. In college, I babysat the same two girls from my freshman year to my senior year until I had to complete my internship. I did my internship at Wintergreen Primary with Mrs. Atcheson in Kindergarten, and I loved it. I taught kindergarten at J.T. Barber for 2 years and 10 years in second grade at Creekside. This is my 1st year teaching first grade. I'm looking forward to seeing these kids grow this year. Each year has been a wonderful learning experience and I can not wait to learn with my kids this year. I am so proud to be a part of the Creekside family the students, families and staff make each day wonderful!
I love country music, summers at the beach and spending time with family and friends. I love high heels but never wear them. I can't cook many things but what I can cook comes out pretty good. I want to travel the world but I love being home. I am a mama's girl and she was a teacher too. My sister is the total opposite of me. She has red hair, blue eyes and a completely different personality. My family LOVES DUKE BASKETBALL!!!!! I would love to meet Coach K. I think most people learn the rules they should live by in kindergarten. Don't steal, be honest, do your own work, try your hardest, be a good friend, use kind words, help others in need and if you want it, you need to work for it and if you don't succeed try again.
