Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Kindergarten!
I am excited to begin the new school year at Micro Elementary. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new ones.
I am a Johnston County native and grew up in Pine Level. I graduated from North Johnston High School in 1991 and then attended East Carolina University, graduating in 1995 with a degree in Elementary Education. I recieved my Master's Degree in 2007 in Reading Education from ECU. I began my teaching career in Clayton, NC where I taught first grade for four years. I transferred to Selma Elementary where I taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grade. I taught there for 17 years. I am now teaching kindergarten at Micro Elementary and I love this school!!
I have two children of my own who bring me more joy than you can know. My daughter, Kailey attends NCSU and my son, Wilson attends NJHS.
Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this upcoming year. However I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents. We are partners in the learning process.
I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate through Class Dojo, text, my website, notes, telephone calls, emails, report cards and parent teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted to return all Pre-K and EC-Self Contained students to Plan B, four days per week, beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 19. These students will participate in face-to-face instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, with Wednesday serving as a remote learning day. All other students in grades K-12 will remain on Plan C until Monday, Feb. 1.
Due to Johnston County being designated a “red” county by the NCDHHS, as well as increased quarantines and COVID cases in the school district as reflected on our dashboard, the Johnston County Board of Education voted to have ALL students, including Pre-K and EC self contained, return to remote learning under Plan C, beginning Monday, December 14 through Friday, January 15. Unless the remote learning period is extended beyond January 15th, students will return to the plan that they chose on the Second Semester Choice form on Tuesday, January 19.
On December 8th 2020, the Johnston County School Board of Education voted to return to Plan C (Remote Learning), we would like to provide an update to parents and guardians of options to complete state-mandated End-of-Course (EOC) and Career/Technical Education Post Assessment testing.
