Degrees and Certifications:
UNC Asheville: Bachelor's Degree in Comparative Literature East Carolina University: K-6 General Education and Middle Grades Education ELA Licensure
This is my first year teaching at Cleveland Middle School but I have previous taught at E.B. Aycock and Brentwood. I started my college education at the University of Miami and graduated from UNC Asheville with a Bachelor's degree in Comparative Literature. I got my teacher's license from East Carolina University.
I grew up in Miami, Florida and loved my time there but am so excited to live in the Triangle. I currently live off Main Street in Clayton with my husband Nate, who works as a Physician Assistant in Greenville and our dog, Jake.
In my free time, I enjoy singing, reading, and working as a real estate agent. My favorite restaurant is Waffle House (my favorite fancy restaurant is CowFish). I love Neil Gaiman (the author of Corraline and Norse Mythology) and am a HUGE movie buff. I am so excited for fall (my favorite season) and decorating my home for Halloween.
I look forward to working with you this year!

CvMS Grading Policy
The following areas will be evaluated:
- Practice Assignments: provide students with feedback and guide instruction (include Classwork, Warm-ups, Homework, Cooperative Learning Activities and some Quizzes)
- Mastery Assignments: measure student mastery of a given goal/concept or skill (include Quizzes, Tests, Projects, Presentations and Skills Checks)
Practice Assignments will not used to calculate a student's numerical grade. Their assessment will constitute part of a behavioral score that will be included in progress reports to parents. These and other behaviors will be assessed according to the CvMS Behavioral Rubric.
Only Mastery Assignments will be used in the calculation of a student's final, numerical grade. Students who do not complete Mastery Assignments will receive a grade of incomplete. Once completed, these scores will become a factor in determining a student's final grade. Athletes will not qualify to participate in sports until all Mastery Assignments are completed.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted to return all Pre-K and EC-Self Contained students to Plan B, four days per week, beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 19. These students will participate in face-to-face instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, with Wednesday serving as a remote learning day. All other students in grades K-12 will remain on Plan C until Monday, Feb. 1.
Due to Johnston County being designated a “red” county by the NCDHHS, as well as increased quarantines and COVID cases in the school district as reflected on our dashboard, the Johnston County Board of Education voted to have ALL students, including Pre-K and EC self contained, return to remote learning under Plan C, beginning Monday, December 14 through Friday, January 15. Unless the remote learning period is extended beyond January 15th, students will return to the plan that they chose on the Second Semester Choice form on Tuesday, January 19.
