Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 1st grade! First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. During the remainder of the year, your child will learn how to read to comprehend, write stories, add, subtract, and solve math word problems and so much more. I hope to make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling. I believe that by all of us working together we will have a successful remainder of the year.
Let me tell you a little about myself, I was born and raised in New Bern. I am married to my best friend, Phillip. Together we have two children, Bowen (5) and Lilly Kate (2). I love to go on boat rides, fishing, and spending time with my family. I graduated from ECU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education in 2008. In 2014, I graduated from UNCW with a Masters in Education for Language and Literacy. I have taught first grade for 9 years with Craven County Schools. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the school or send me an email.
