Degrees and Certifications:
WELCOME TO FIRST GRADE!
Here is a little about me. I was born in Oklahoma, moved to Alabama, Florida, and North Carolina where I have spend a majority of my life. I moved away a few times but NC always pulled me back. Three years ago we moved to New Bern. I have been married for 15 years and have a daughter who is attending HJ MacDonald in 6th grade. I received my Masters in Elementary Education in 2006 and have taught kindergarten and first grade since then minus 2 years I stayed home with my daughter, Savanna. Teaching is my passion and I love to help children learn how to read. In my free time I love to do yoga, be by the water and spending time with family. I try to keep life fun and exciting by learning new things any chance I get. Two years ago I trained and ran my first half marathon! This summer I mastered the art of paddle boarding, learned how to drive a boat and trained our new puppy, Callie! Check out the photo gallery below for pictures of my family.
I look forward to learning all about your child. Each child has special gifts and talents. I will strive to learn each child's uniqueness and style of learning to help them successed. You will be amazed with what your child will learn this year. We are the Busy Bees and will buzz with excitment for learning. I strive for a technology rich classroom, I communicate through various media- emails, Seesaw ( more to come), Classdojo (more info coming) and traditional letters. My door is always open so please don't hesitate to ask questions, volunteer and join our learning. You can email me anytime at email@example.com. I try to respond within 24 hours. An exciting year awaits us!
