I hope everyone has a great summer! See you for the 2020-2021 school year!
Welcome, 3rd graders, to The Greatest School! This will be my 15th year teaching and fourth here at WCES. This year is shaping up to be the best one yet! I'm excited to be part of a school community that is committed to putting students first.
Outside of school, I am a mother of two girls who both go to school here- Emily is in 5th grade and Katelyn is in 2nd. I have a husband, Mike. I have a pet dog, two cats, a hermit crabs, and a turtle- George- who hangs out here in our classroom. I love to read, and paint. I also run, hike, and cycle. My happy place is anywhere outdoors. I love camping. I'm really into yoga! I LOVE coffee, peaches, and cherries.
I look forward to getting to know each and every one of my students and their families as we journey together through the third grade year!
Teaching is my passion. I love what I do and my goal this year is to give my students the tools to be motivated self-learners. Thank you for your support in this.
With much love,

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
As students in grades K-5 begin returning to school, the curbside locations for free meals will now be located at each middle and high school. The curbside meal locations at our elementary schools will end on Friday, Oct. 2 and will open at the middle and high schools on Monday, Oct. 5.
