Degrees and Certifications:
I am a native of Wayne County. In 2015, I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I have been a Tar Heel all my life and love cheering for the Heels! This is my sixth year teaching at GKE. I taught kindergarten for four years, and this will be my second year in second grade!
I love watching baseball, and I especially enjoy watching the Tar Heels play! I also love to spend time with family and friends, cook, and read. In November 2016 I married my wonderful husband, Adam. Together we have a daughter, Lainey. Lainey and I love to the baseball games together!

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.
