Degrees and Certifications:
BS in Elementary Education (K-6) Masters in Reading Education (K-12)
I graduated with my Elementary Education Degree from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2001. In May of 2007, I graduated with my Master's Degree in Reading K-12 from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I came to Johnston County in 2007 from Randolph County where I had taught for 5 years. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 18th year of teaching and I love it more each year! I love teaching for many reasons, but most of all I love learning! I am a life-long learner and want all of my students to know the importance of an education. Education is the most wonderful thing and it can never be taken from you!
It is an honor and a privilege to have been given the opportunity to teach your child this year. I look forward to a wonderful year building a relationship with both you and your child.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
