Hello! Welcome to 5th grade at Cox Mill! I am thrilled to be teaching math and science this year. I will be pairing up with Mrs. Fils-Aime, who will be providing ELA and social studies instruction. This will be my 4th year in teaching and my 1st year at Cox Mill, but I'm not brand new to the school! I had the pleasure of student teaching at The Mill during the 2017-2018 school year and I am beyond excited to be back! I graduated from UNC Charlotte (go niners!) in May of 2018 with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Urban Youth and Communities. I am currently working towards earning my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language and will graduate on December 17 (woohoo!). I look forward to working with your child this year.
A little bit about myself! I am from Dunn, NC which is a very small town about three hours east, but I am happy to now call Concord my home. I love spending time outside, I go hiking and camping often. I also enjoy going to the movies, playing card games with my friends (Phase 10 is my favorite) and hanging out with my favorite mammal, my cat Phoebe.
I also love to travel. I studied abroad for 3 weeks in South Africa during the summer of 2016 where I went paragliding and shark cage diving. I have a trip planned this summer to Krakow, Prague and Budapest! It is my dream to someday teach abroad.
Open communication is very important to a successful school year. I am looking forward to seeing what this year brings!
