Degrees and Certifications:
B.S. in Elementary Education
Hello! I grew up in Vanceboro and attended East Carolina University where I graduated with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I taught First Grade for three years and Kindergarten for five years at James W. Smith Elementary. Last year I transferred to Vanceboro Farm Life, where I attended as a child. I taught 3rd grade for the 2019-2020 schoolyear. I am happy to join the 5th grade team this year!
I have always loved working with children and always knew I wanted to turn that passion into a career. I believe that every child is capable of learning but children learn in many different ways. In our classroom, I want students to feel free to express themselves and respect each others' ideas.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and three-year-old twin girls. I love traveling and spending time outdoors!
