Hello! Welcome to our 5th grade class website!
This is my fourth year at Cox Mill Elementary School, and I love it here! This will be my 20th year teaching. I have taught in grades 3 through 8, and this is my sixth year working with 5th graders.
I am originally from Long Island, New York, and I first moved to Charlotte in 1999. I taught in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools for six years before moving to upstate New York to be closer to family and friends. I spent 8 years there, but I could not stay away from the beauty of North Carolina, so I came back in 2013! I love spending time exploring all that this area has to offer with my 8 year old daughter, Aurora.
This year I will be teaching math and science, and my teammate, Mrs. Stevenson-Jordan, will teach ELA and social studies . We are very excited to work with your child, and we have some great things planned! I know it is going to be a fabulous year!
