Welcome to Fifth Grade!

I am so excited for my second year at Hickory Ridge Elementary!!  I have taught both fourth and fifth grade in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Cabarrus County. I earned a BS in Elementary Education from the University of West Georgia and a Masters degree in Elementary Education from Walden University. This is my tenth year of teaching and I will be teaching both Science and Social Studies. Your child will also be learning Reading with Mr. Crisp and Math with Mrs. Gibson.

I grew up in Georgia (although I'm a Florida Gator fan) and moved to North Carolina 12 years ago. My husband and I have two girls who are both attending HRES!

I am so excited for the 2021-2022 school year!
