Degrees and Certifications:
B.A. in Psychology
I graduated from Elon University with a degree in psychology and am currently working on my masters in special education at UNC Charlotte! I started my teaching career in an Autism Resource program in the Winston-Salem Forsyth County school district and it was a wonderful experience. I was recognized with the Promise Award for being a first year teacher showing promise and dedication to the field of education. This will be my third year in the Learning Connections classroom at W.R. Odell Primary. I have high expectations for my students and I'm positive they will meet them!
