Hello! I am so excited to start our 2021-2022 year at FOES!

A little about me: 

Proud military spouse.

Momma of two great daughters!

Doggie momma to three adorable pups. 

I love to travel, everywhere!

I am a UNCW graduate times two, once for my undergraduate studies and then again for my graduate degree!

I am passionate about serving my students and their families.

I believe in constant and clear communication.

I love teaching! I've taught Prek, Kinder, Second, Third, and Fourth grades, every grade is special. 

We WILL make it a great year together! Here's to an awesome school year! 

My favorite motto in the classoom, "We were made to do hard things!" Third grade is an awesome adventure and I am so happy I get to share it with your family!

  • Come see us at FOES on August 19, 2021 for our Open House. The time is 2:30-6:30. One parent per family. Please see the school website for additional information. 

    First day of school is August 23, 2021. Make sure you have communicated your student's travel arrangements with me!
