Hello! I am so excited to be a Cardinal this year! I am a Johnston County native who has returned after a ten year detour through Maryland and Japan! I have served in many capacities in the past teaching PreK, Fourth, Kindergarten, and Third grade! I look forward to all of the things I will learn during my time in second grade. 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. We WILL make it a great year together! Here's to an awesome school year!
