Hi everyone! I am very excited to work with you this year! We will be having a lot of fun learning in third grade! This is my fifth year at James W. Smith Elementary and I am extremely grateful. I grew up in a town near Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania where I lived with my parents, two sisters, brother, and two dogs. I moved to New Bern four years ago from Pennsylvania, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, PA. While at Susquehanna, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, where I was fully immersed in the culture, lifestyle, and routines of the native peoples. I ALSO GOT TO GO ZIP LINING!!! From this experience, I discovered so many things about myself that I could not have done if I hadn't left my comfort zone. New Bern may be far from home, but I am so excited to continue my adventure in third grade and for all the new experiences it will bring! I am looking forward to being your teacher, working with you, and getting to know each of you this year! I am dedicated to ensure that your child is loved and respected in my classroom.
