Welcome to First Grade!
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. In 2001, I earned my National Boards for Professional Teaching Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist. I am so proud to be an educator for twenty-nine years! The majority of my career has been in first grade where I couldn't be happier! I love teaching and living in Johnston County. I look forward to working with your family this year.
