I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from North Carolina Wesleyan College. I graduated from NC Wesleyan College in 2010.I started teaching at Glendale-Kenly Elementary in 2011. I have enjoyed being here and I love the school. I love sports and my favorite team is the North Carolina Tarheels. During high school, I played basketball and softball. While I was at Wesleyan I played softball.
