Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mild/Moderate Cross Categorical Disabilities K-12.
Hey there! I'm so excited to begin my 3rd year at James W. Smith Elementary as an Exceptional Children's Teacher. I'm originally from Lincoln, Nebraska where I grew up golfing, riding horses, and cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers! I decided to venture out of Nebraska to attend college at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri. I graduated from MWSU in 2018 and earned my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mild/Moderate Cross Categorical Disabilities K-12. I also played on the MWSU women's golf team for four years. While wrapping up my last year of college, I began to explore the opportunities to teach near mountains or a beach, since I couldn't find either in Nebraska or Missouri! I'm grateful to be a part of the James W. Smith family and I look forward to meeting the students and parents of Craven County!
