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.
