Get ready to take chances, make mistakes and get messy!  I look forward to working with you in helping your child succeed in the 5th grade.

  • I began my teaching career in Virginia 18 years ago where I taught first grade in Roanoke, VA for four years.  I then began teaching in Cloverdale, VA with Botetourt County Schools where I taught fifth grade, third grade and second grade.  During the summer months I worked on math curriculum development and created questions for math benchmarks for Botetourt County.  I also served on the leadership team to aide in the decision making process for the school's improvement plan.  In June of 2015 I moved to Clayton, North Carolina and continued my teaching career with Johnston County Schools at Polenta Elementary.  In Johnston County, I have been a part of the Math Investigations Cohorts for 2nd grade and 5th grade.  I also have partnered with NC State to collect data for a math research project entitled Project AIM.  Additionally, I have mentored Sophmores, Juniors and Seniors from NC State to complete their elementary education course requirements.
