I am thrilled to have your child in my class this year! I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and graduated from Utah State University in Logan, Utah. I moved to North Carolina last summer with my dog, Sammy, to be closer to family. This is my 6th year teaching 5th grade, and my second year at W.M. Irvin Elementary! I am excited to be part of the Irvin family and get to know all of my new students!
