Hello! Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year! We are going to have an amazing year and will have so much fun learning and growing together!
A little about me… this is my third year working at CHES. During the past few years, I have held several long-term substitute teaching positions at our school – two in kindergarten, one in first grade and one in third grade! Prior to working at CHES, I held positions as a kindergarten instructional assistant, pre-k teacher and as a preschool director. During this time, I have discovered that kindergarten is truly where my passion lies!
I received my B.A. from the University of Akron in 2001 and my J.D. from the University of Akron School of Law in 2004. I practiced law for several years in Ohio before leaving the field to become a stay-at-home mom for seven years! My family (my husband and two boys ages 12 and 10) and I moved to North Carolina in 2013. In 2015 I reentered the workforce and made the decision to change my career to teaching!
When I am not teaching, I love reading, watching my boys play soccer and hockey, traveling to new places, cuddling with my dog Joy, and listening to country music!
