I am estatic to join the James W Smith team! Teaching is an absolute passion of mine. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and it is so surreal to finally see my dreams become a reality. I graduated in December of 2019 from East Carolina University with a BS in Elementary Education and a concentration in reading. I was born and raised in New Bern, North Carolina. I feel so blessed to be able to teach and give back to the community that I grew up in. I am married with one fur baby. My husband is a firefighter for the City of New Bern and also works EMS at Carolina East Medical Center. In my free time I enjoy crafting, reading, and taking classes such as yoga and zumba at a local gym! Dancing is another passion of mine. I have been dancing since i was six years old. I am the assistant coach for the New Bern High School Drill Team and teach dance classes at a local dance studio in New Bern. My goal is to create a positive and effective learning enviroment for each and every student in my classroom. I cannot wait to see the growth among each stduent at the end of year!
