I also have a Reading Endorsement and AIG certification in JCPS. I had the opportunity to travel abroad to Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, and South Africa. I have 18 years of teaching experience; 8 years in Georgia and 10 here in Johnston County. I have taught first grade, second grade, and fifth grade.
