WELCOME BACK!!!

First day of school:  Aug. 26, 2019

Can you believe we are about to start our 2019-2020 school year?  I am excited to begin the year and I hope to see you at our Meet the Teacher on Wednesday, Aug. 21, from 4:30-6:30 pm.  

 

 

About me:

My love of teaching began when I was five years old.  I had two teachers who were the most influential in my school years. I have been teaching for 31 years.  The last 17 of those have been here at McGee's in 5th grade.   

I was born in North Carolina, grew up in Granville County, and have lived in Johnston County for 26 years.  I graduated from UNC-Greensboro. 
Reading is my favorite hobby and I try to instill that in my students.
