Degrees and Certifications:
I am a 5th grade Language Arts teacher at Corinth Holders Elementary School. I was born and raised in Johnston County! I attended Selma Elementary, Selma Middle, and SSS, graduating in 2000. I am a 2004 graduate from UNC Pembroke, with a degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in English Literature. I have taught at Corinth Holders Elementary for all of my 17 years of teaching and have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I am excited about returning to 5th grade this year and seeing some familiar faces. I have two amazing kids; Sydney, who is 11 and in 7th grade at ALMS this year, and Benjamin, who will be turning 6 this October and beginning Kindergarten at CHES! I love everything Disney and enjoy reading, watching movies, and spending time with family.
Teaching and inspiring students to have a love for reading is still and will always be a passion for me as an educator!
I am looking forward to teaching your child this year!
