About Me-This is my fourteenth year teaching here at McGee’s Crossroads Elementary School. I have lived in Johnston County most of my life. I attended South Johnston High School and graduated from Lees-McRae College in 2007. I was then able to study abroad in Costa Rica and Italy, as well as work in Washington, D.C. In addition to my travels, I earned my Master's in Reading Instruction and Curriculum and Design in 2010.
It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subjects so that my students develop a desire to become lifelong learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us. I look forward to a great year together!
