Hello! Welcome to Third Grade! I have been teaching for eleven years, and this will be my seventh year teaching third grade. I LOVE working with third graders - they have so much energy and enthusiasm!
Teaching is where my heart is, and I am thankful every day for the opportunity to work with the students here at West Clayton Elementary. My greatest wish is for each of my students to know they are valued, to instill in them a love of learning, and to encourage them to always keep their natural sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them.
Some additional information about myself:
Family: I am blessed to have an amazing and supportive husband of 27 years. Together we have raised two wonderful children. We also have a beautiful granddaughter. We have made our home in Clayton since 1993.
Education: I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticultural Science and Landscape Design from NC State University. After marrying and starting a family, I made the decision to stay home and raise our children. I was a preschool teacher for many years while our son and daughter were in elementary school. Later I earned my Post Baccalaureate in Elementary Education (K-6th Grade) through East Carolina University.
Hobbies and interests: When I have time I enjoy hiking, gardening, reading and crochet. My favorite place to be is either on the beach, hiking in the mountains, or working in my garden (as you can tell, I like being outdoors). I enjoy puzzles, playing cards, and all kinds of crafts. My favorite color is pink. I definitely have a sweet tooth - My favorite candies are caramels, fruity chewy candies, and of course....chocolate!!
I look forward to meeting all of my students! It's going to be an exciting year!
