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!
