Please use the links provided to access what is going on in our classroom. I will also be communicating with students through Google Classroom and parents through Bloomz. I will be holding virtual meetings with the kids throughout our time away from school. This is certainly a unique situation, but letś make the best of it! Please feel free to check in each week to see updates.
This will be my 25th year of teaching with the last 20 here at ECES. I am a mother to Kamye, 19, a sophomore at Appalachian State and J.T, 13, an eighth grader at Riverwood Middle. I have a passion for cheerleading and Boy Scouts. My daughter cheers at App State and my son is a 1st Class Scout. I am also a Disney Junkie! I would love to live in Fantasyland.with my husband. I enjoy relaxing on the beach, reading a great novel, and spending time with my family.
The theme of our classroom is ¨Peace, Love, and Harmony." It is my hope that my students develop a community that supports one another. I enjoy sharing experiences with my students as I watch them grow throughout the year. Education is so much more than just reading, writing, and arithmetic. My passion is helping students grow into kind, motivated, excited citizens.
